Spurned lover burns 21-yr-old Chennai engineer alive, family suffers injuries

Chennai women burned alive allegedly by stalker family critical

A woman in Chennai on Tuesday died of severe burn injuries after she, her mother and sister were allegedly set ablaze by a 23-year-old man, who police believe was stalking her for the last one month.

Around 9pm on Monday, Akash went to Induja's house in South Chennai's Velachery.

According to the police, Akash, a college dropout had proposed Sinduja, which she is believed to have rejected. And she quitted the job last month as Ashok was continuously stalking her. Induja's uncle said that Ashok was stalking Induja since her father went overseas for some work.

Her mother suffered 49 percent burns, while the sister is undergoing treatment at Kilpauk Medical Hospital. When she opened the door and stepped out, Akash splashed petrol at her and set her on fire.

Aakash claimed that he and the woman were in a relationship and they planned to marry, police officials said. "In a fit of rage he took out a bottle of kerosene and set her on fire and tried to escape when the neighbours caught him and handed him over to the police", said a police source. He forced the girl and her family members to open the door by threatening them of committing suicide by setting himself on fire.

A neighbour said the ambulance arrived too late, at least 40 minutes after a call was made.

The victim, an engineering graduate, was reportedly working in a company for the last few months.

According to The Times of India, Induja died after being admitted to the hospital. "Knowing that my brother is working overseas, the accused came to Induja's residence".
