Ivan Hill | 23 December, 2017, 02:02

The woman has suffered 50 percent burns and her condition is said to be critical. Following a heated argument, the attackers sprinkled petrol on her and set her on fire. We had taken a dying declaration late last night in which she informed us about Karthik and how he was stalking her after she refused to marry him. The police arrested Karthik on a charge of murder. Later, he followed me and poured kerosene and set me afire, " Rani told the police while being treated for her burns in the hospital.

Sandhya had been working in a commercial establishment for about a year.

"The passersby, who found her engulfed in fire, around 7 pm, tried to douse the flames and shifted her to Gandhi hospital".

Complimenting her is Virat, who opted for a black sherwani paired with a heavy dupatta for a royal effect and off white pyajamas. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's grand wedding reception will be held at the Durbar Hall of the Taj Hotel in Chanakyapuri.


A colleague of hers, Karthik, met her on the way, and the two spoke a few minutes, eyewitnesses said. Several years ago, her father passed away. 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. "However, Sandhya insisted on continuing with the job and ended their relationship", DCP Sumathi said. Police have arrested the accused. Based on Karthik's body language and hand gestures, it appears they were arguing, and Sandhya started walking faster as if trying to shake him off.

According to the Indian Express report, a case has been registered against Karthik at the Lalaguda police station under Sections of IPC 302, 354, 354 D, and SC/ST Atrocities Act as Sandhya belonged to the Mala community. In May, a 24-year-old woman was shot dead by a man in Delhi after she refused his marriage proposal.

Sandhya's mother, who was waiting for her daughter at home, was devastated after hearing the news.
