UP: Former boyfriend allegedly sets girl on fire in Allahabad

Allahabad: A B Tech student of Allahabad University was allegedly set on fire by her former boyfriend on Tuesday while she was on her way to the college.

The police said that her former boyfriend has been arrested for the crime.

They were in a relation for almost three years. The girl is believed to be dating someone else which was resented by the boy. This is supposedly the reason behind the attack.

The victim has suffered 30 per cent burns and doctors said she is out of danger.

Last month, a similar case happened in the Jawaharlal Nehru University where a boy attacked a girl with a sharp object and later killed himself.
