The relationship had been continuing for many years but it was illicit—the man and his lover were both married. There was obvious resistance from parents but on Friday it took a very ugly turn—the man set his lover ablaze after pouring kerosene over her. Then he immolated himself in Telangana's Vikarabad.
According to police, since the last few years, the man Narasimhulu was in an illicit relationship with Anjalamma.
Under pressure, the girl starts ignoring
"Both of them were married. When their parents got to know about it, they objected to their relationship. Since the last few days, Anjalamma was ignoring Narasimhulu and was not responding to him. He bore a grudge against Anjalamma," said a police official.
Man decides to confront girl, her parents
According to police, in the wee hours on Friday, Narasimhulu came at her lover's residence in Vikarabad district and a heated discussion took place between the two and her parents.
"Narasimhulu who was carrying kerosene with him poured it over Anjalamma and set her on fire. Later he poured kerosene on himself and set himself ablaze. Narasimhulu sustained 90 per cent burn injuries while Anjalamma received 80 per cent burn injuries," ANI quoted the police official as saying.
Both of them were shited to the hospital, but they could not survive.
Anjalamma's parents also sustained 30 per cent to 40 per cent injuries while trying to save both of them.
