In a brutal incident, a 22 year old woman was set ablaze by her 25 year old stalker to whom she refused to talk though he had been following her continuously for over a month. S Indhuja was attacked outside her house by Aakash. As he began setting her on fire, Indhuja’s mother and sister came out to rescue her who survived with minor burn injuries.
The man had been stalking Indhuja for over a month whom he called his lover and claimed was deeply in love with, reports Hindu. When she refused to talk to him whenever he appeared, he decided to go to her house to talk to her for a few minutes. Infuriated by her attitude towards him, he poured petrol on her and set her on fire.
When neighbours heard the commotion they rushed to help the family but Indhuja was declared brought dead while the other two are under treatment.
The accused, who escaped from the scene after receiving a few blows, was reportedly nabbed up by the police on Tuesday.
