Twenty-two-year-old Hyderabad woman burnt alive by former colleague

Sandhya Rani

The incident was reported from Shanti Nagar in Lallaguda on Thursday evening.

The latest victim of stalking is a 25-year-old woman, who was allegedly set ablaze last evening in full public view in Telangana's Secunderabad by a man suspected to be her lover. The victim has been identified as Sandhya Rani. "If we had known we would have taken precautions and informed police also".

Karthik allegedly threw petrol on Sandhya while she was walking home from work in Lalaguda area and set her on fire.

Sandhya had been working in a commercial establishment for about a year. However, Karthik was dismissed from the job recently due to inefficiency and was presently unemployed. Before Sandhya was set ablaze, the accused called the victim on her mobile phone and the police got his telephone number, which was kept switched off. Sandhya's mother and sisters, however, could not recognise him.

"She died today at 7:20 am". Karthik had planned all this before hand. She succumbed to the severe burns on Friday morning. "He got into an argument with her as to why she refused to marry him", the official said. The police made a decision to get the victim's statement (Dying Declaration) recorded through a magistrate. "In her dying declarations the girl said that the accused was harassing her and forcing her for marriage". It is learnt that he came on a motorcycle at the time of committing the crime. Karthik had parked his bike in the parking lot of a nearby hotel.
