Police on Thursday arrested a suspect – who along with unknown aides had allegedly set a girl ablaze after she refused to marry him – in an attempted murder case.
A First Information Report (FIR) was filed by the mother of the 16-year-old girl who was allegedly set on fire for refusing a marriage proposal. Police said that the victim, whose face, body and arms were badly burnt, was shifted to the burn unit of the hospital.
