Husband thrashes wife, sets her on fire publicly.

A 25-year-old woman suffered serious burn injuries after her
husband allegedly set her on fire outside their house on Thursday evening in India.

Police said that the couple were having a dispute and had
filed a divorce suit last year.

Eyewitnesses said that the man, Rayees Khan, dragged
the woman, Rubina, to a roundabout and
pushed her to the ground and even thrashed her before setting her on fire.

She is reported to have suffered 70
per cent body burns with minimal chances of survival in East Delhi's Guru Tegh
Bahadur hospital.

Indian Police spokesman said a case under section 307 IPC (attempt to murder) and causing mischief by fire has been registered against Khan and a search is on to nab him.
