Bhopal: A married woman who tried to elope with her Dalit lover met a
gruesome death when her husband and in-laws tried to hang her, then
set her on fire in Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place last week in the Lahar village of Murena
district 450 km from the state capital of Bhopal, police said.
Guddi, who was married to Dhaniram, was trying to escape from their
village with her lover. Her husband and his parents tried to hang her
from a tree. When she survived, they allegedly beat her up, poured
kerosene over her, and then tried to set her on fire. When that
attempt to kill her also proved unsuccessful, they placed her on a
wooden pyre and then lit a match.
She was finally killed near a temple while the whole village
watched, police said.
An FIR or police case was registered after the woman's father complained.
