Hyderabad man burns woman to death in public for rejecting marriage proposal

In a disgusting incident, a 25-year-old woman was doused with petrol and burnt alive by her jilted lover in full public view on the main road of Shanti Nagar in Lallaguda on Thursday evening.

The victim, Sandhya Rani, was a receptionist for a company in the Secunderabad area. The accused Karthik has been taken into custody. Sandhya had got the job with help from Karthik. Sandhya Rani too had threatened that she would bring the issue to the notice of police.

According to the Reddy, Karthik would pester Rani with marriage proposals, which she denied. However, some local residents took quick cognizance of the matter and doused the fire.

July 18, 2017: A 22 year-old woman suffered serious burn injuries after she was attacked with acid in Petbasheerabad police limits. "She was rescued and shifted to hospital", Sumathi told the Indian Express. The victim died this morning, said the police. She reportedly turned down his proposal explaining that her family values do not permit to marry him. They demanded Karthik be hanged for the cruelty.


At one point, shop owner Jagan Reddy had warned Karthik not to trouble Sandhya. "However, Sandhya insisted on continuing with the job and ended their relationship", DCP Sumathi said.

Recreating the crime scene based on CCTV footage, cops found that Karthik waited outside her office till she came out at 6:15 pm on Thursday. They were seen talking for about 10 minutes. "Investigations have revealed that Karthik had been chasing and harassing Sandhya for months". It was a pre-planned murder.

D Savitri, mother of Sandhya said that she never confided to her about Karthik and his threats and harassment. "We are now altering the case sections also". In another horrific incident in September 2016, a 21-year-old woman was killed after a 34-year-old man who had been stalking her for more than a year stabbed her at least 22 times with a pair of scissors. Meanwhile, a case under section 307 of IPC & ST/SC Atrocity Act has been registered against the accused.
