A 35-year-old West Bengal man was charred to death when a woman he raped and set on fire grabbed him as she was still burning, police said. The woman has been admitted to the Malda Medical College and Hospital and is being treated for burn injuries on her face and hands.


What had happened?

According to the woman, the perpetrator used to disturb her and when no one was there in the house on Monday, March 4, he allegedly raped her and set her on fire. The woman grabbed him tightly while still ablaze, reported News18.

Upon noticing fire emanating from the house, locals rushed to the house and found both the accused and the woman on fire inside a room. Officials said that a jar of kerosene was also found in the room. Both of them were taken to a local hospital by the officials and later transferred to Malda Medical College and Hospital, where the man succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, March 5.

The woman lives in Subhash Colony, which is under Manikchak police station limits. Among her three daughters, the eldest is married and lives elsewhere.

Subhash Colony happens to be 35 km from Chanchal, where the accused lives and police are now trying to find out why he visited the woman’s house.

While locals claimed that they have often seen the man coming to the woman’s house, while District Superintendent of Police Arnab Ghosh said, “We are investigating the case from all angles.”

Although we do not know for certain whether this is a case of stalking, cases of stalking, rape and murder have become so common these days that almost every day a new incident comes to light. In another case of gruesome assault and violence, a young woman was set ablaze by her stalker in Warangal district of Telangana. The incident took place on Wednesday, February 27 after the woman reportedly rejected his marriage proposal. The woman, who was in a ‘grave’ situation, succumbed to her injuries on Monday, March 4. Perpetrators in cases like these should be made to face extremely severe consequences so that these crimes can be stopped from being on the rise.
