Shahjahanpur : A 35-year-old Dalit woman was today allegedly immolated
by her paramour after she refused to accompany him in Sehramau area
here, police said.

Rekha alias Chanda was first beaten and later set on fire by her
paramour Shripal when she resisted the latter's effort to forcibly
take her to his house in Atakhurd village this morning, they said.

The victim's husband Jhabho has alleged that Shripal was blackmailing
the victim for a long time on the pretext of the illicit relationship
developed between them, police said.

However, Rekha, who was having four children, refused to leave home
which infuriated Shripal, police said, adding that the accused has
been arrested later.
