Chennai women burned alive allegedly by stalker family critical

Her mother Renuka (44) and sister Nivedha (20), who tried to rescue her, sustained burns and are being treated in hospital for their injuries. Induja, 21, was in her house with her mother Renuka and her siblings Nivedita and Manoj when Akash confronted them around 9 pm. "The accused killed the girl after she rejected him", said the inspector.

According to the police, Akash first threatened to commit suicide by setting himself ablaze outside the house. He poured petrol on her and set her ablaze. The incident took place on Monday night in Saraswathi Nagar area of Chennai's Adambakkam.

The accused, Aakash, absconded right after but was caught on Tuesday morning. However, when the three women came out, splashed petrol on Induja and used a lighter to set her fire.

Demanding a strong punishment to the offender, PMK chief S Ramadoss said it was a "matter of concern that the government has not taken any steps to rein in violence against women, staged in the name of one-side love". Doctors at the KMC Hospital said Renuka and Nivedha suffered 49% and 23% burns repectively, mostly on their faces and hands.

Media reports cited neighbours claiming that the ambulance arrived too late, at least 40 minutes after a call was made. While Akash dropped out, Induja went on to complete her graduation course in engineering and land a job in an IT firm in the city.

Sinduja died after being admitted to Kilpauk Medical College Hospital.

Induja's father was not at home at the time, according to NDTV. Initially, they didn't open the door, but Akash insisted that he would only to talk to Induja.
