AGRA: In a gruesome act of domestic violence, a man along with his relatives stripped down his wife, tied her limbs and set her on fire in Agra.
The incident took place in Sayeed Nagar’s Nai Basti of Tajganj area. After the incident, the accused Shanu along with relatives are on run.
They poured down 5 liter kerosene on the victim, identified as Niloufer (27), who is mother of three kids and set her on fire on the roof at her in-laws home on Sunday afternoon.
According to Niloufer’s younger sister Roshni, “Almost every day, Shanu assaulted Niloufer mercilessly for petty issues. In fact, on several occasion, Shanu raised questions on my sister’s character and made her strip in front of kids.”
“On Sunday, he tore the clothes of my sister in front of the kids and tied her limbs. When Niloufer’s eldest son Rizwan (10) protested against the cruelty, Shanu pushed him on the ground floor and set her on fire in front of rest of the family members,” alleged Roshini.
“It was the neighbors who informed us about the incident, after black smoke coming from Shanu’s home covered the colony,” she added.
