A 22-year-old married man died in a village here on Wednesday, two days after he allegedly set fire on himself outside the house of a woman he was in love with, police said.

The deceased, Akash, allegedly self-immolated after dousing himself with kerosene in Jokhanpur village of Baheri tehsil on Monday, they said.

He took the extreme step after the woman refused to meet him, the police said, adding that she was staying at a relative’s place.

Akash was rushed to a hospital with severe burn injuries, and he died during treatment on Wednesday, the police added.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rohit Singh Sajwan said the incident appeared to be an outcome of a failed love affair. Further investigation is on.
