The Hush Post: A married woman attempted suicide by setting herself ablaze outside a police station in Hyderabad due to some family feud.

The 25-year-old married woman took this extreme step outside Bowenpally Police Station in Hyderabad, a report said.

The victim who has two children took this extreme step at around 12.30 pm due to some domestic feud, Inspector P Vijay Kumar reportedly said.

The cop said the husband of the victim had sent her back to her parents’ house about two months back after coming to know that she was allegedly in a relationship with another man.

The woman doused herself with a bottle of some inflammable liquid and set herself ablaze even as police and locals rushed to her rescue and shifted her to a local hospital, the report said.

The woman sustained 45 per cent burns in this incident.

Preliminary probe says that the woman resorted to the act as she wanted to “punish” the man with whom she was allegedly having an affair for trapping her, the report said.

The police have lodged an FIR under Section 309 (attempt to commit suicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
