A politician, who was hugged by a “human torch” during an election debate on TV, died after sustaining burns on his body, Makkal Osai reported.
Kamruzzama Fauji, who was a leader of the Bahujan Samaj Party, had suffered 75% burns on his body when an audience member doused himself in petrol and grabbed him.
Both men were engulfed in flames in front of the horrified crowd. The debate was being recorded in a park in Sultanpur, about 160km from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.
Fauji’s attacker, who had 95% burns, died soon after the incident.
Rupali Nandi was on a wheelchair when she got married to draughtsman Varun Bagh, 30, at the hospital in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, on Friday, Tamil Nesan reported.
Varun, who did not want the illness to ruin their wedding plan, had requested the hospital authorities to solemnise the wedding at the ward.
It was Rupali’s second marriage. Her first husband died 10 months after they tied the knot five years ago.
She met Varun recently at a function organised to promote remarriage for widows.
