In a shocking incident, where a man set his wife ablaze over a quarrel along with his two kids in Nandanam, Chennai, India Times reported.
According to the Police, Nagaraj, who works with Ola, entered into a verbal battle with his wife, N Prema who, along with their children, was seated on the back seat of the car. The disagreement soon took a wild turn when Prema poured petrol that was kept under her seat on herself and threatened Nagaraj.
According to reports, Nagaraj then lit his wife and stepped out of the car. He did not even take his children with him and left them inside the car with their burning mother. However Prema managed to threw her children out of the car as the fire spread all over.
She was taken to Kilpauk Medical College Hospital where she gave a statement and succumbed to high degree burns subsequently. A police officer said, “Nagaraj stepped out of the car after setting her ablaze. She managed to throw her children four years old Thisanth Raj and two years old Yashwanth Raj through the open window on to the road. The children are out of danger and are admitted in KMC hospital for treatment.”
Prema’s mother, Amravathi, registered a complaint with the police who have booked Nagaraj under IPC 302 for murder. The children have been rescued.
