TWO high school students in Telangana, India, who found out they were both in love with the same girl set fire to themselves, killing one and leaving the other in critical condition.
The two Grade 10 (equivalent to Form 5) teenagers from a school in Hyderabad met up a few nights ago with another student to drink and talk late into the night.
After the subject of the girl came up, the two poured petrol all over each other and set themselves alight.
The injured student is in intensive care currently.
