Madhugiri: A boy reportedly set himself on fire after having watched the Telugu horror-fantasy genre movie “Arundathi”.

Renuka Prasad (22) is the victim.

Renuka had brought 20 litres of petrol out of which he poured one litre on him and set himself on fire. When he could not bear the heat, he came running toward the streets. Taluk President of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KaRaVe) Shivakumar who was passing by that side came to his rescue and immediately admitted him to Madhugiri Government Hospital.

Later, he was shifted to Victoria Hospital in Bengaluru for advanced treatment.

His condition is said to be stable.

Meanwhile, Renuka’s father Siddappa has said, “My son was a topper in SSLC and for higher education, we had sent him to Tumakuru. Inspite of telling him not to watch ‘Arundathi’, he has watched the movie. He became a spoiled brat after he joined the hostel”.
