Barabanki (UP): A 16-year-old girl died today after she was allegedly set ablaze by her jilted lover at Chaukhandi village under Safdarganj police station limits in Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh, the police said. 

The girl was at a neighbour’s house when the accused, identified as Amit (24), dragged her out, poured kerosene and set her on fire, they said.

The victim’s father, in his complaint, also alleged the involvement of the accused’s mother in the crime. The girl suffered serious burn injuries and was rushed to the district hospital where she died.

The girl was allegedly in touch with another local youth and this might have led him to committing the crime, the police said, adding that a case was registered and efforts were on to nab the culprit. 

Circle Officer Rajesh Yadav, who visited the spot, said the girl had some arguments with the accused after which he set her ablaze. 

All angles will be probed in the case, Yadav said.
