On August 23, a 19-year-old girl named Ankita Kumari set ablaze by her stalker, Shahrukh Husain, in Dumka, Jharkhand, succumbed to her injuries on August 28 (Sunday).

The next day, at around 4 in the morning, he along with his friend poured petrol through the window of my room. I felt a sensation on my back and could smell burning. I opened my eyes only to see Shahrukh and his accomplice, Chotu, running away,” Ankita said in her statement.
A burning Ankita ran to her parent’s bedroom who doused the fire and immediately rushed her to Phulo Jhano Medical College and Hospital in Dumka. She had suffered 90% burn injuries.
She was later referred to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi for better treatment. However, after a week of extreme pain and being unable to move her body, Ankita passed away on Sunday at around 2.30 am.
Shahrukh Hussain, who worked as a construction worker, was arrested by the police on August 23.
