Accused, Ashok Kumar, 32, who is posted at Leh in Jammu and Kashmir was on leave and came to the village three days ago. Late on Monday night, he started boozing while the wife was preparing dinner.
“Since he was adamant to continue boozing, his wife kept the food in the kitchen and went to bed. Around 4 am on Tuesday , when the wife saw him boozing, she asked him to stop it. The two quarreled,” an investigating police officer from Neemrana police station said.
Initially, he beat up his wife and later poured kerosene on her and set her ablaze. “He was in an inebriated condition. Later , the neighbours informed us,” the officer said.
The police said the woman Kamlesh (26) was rushed to the hospital but she succumbed to injuries. “We have arrested the accused,” the officer said.
