Man dies after setting himself ablaze in AP town

Karimnagar (AP), Nov 28, 2012, (PTI) :

A physically-challenged man died after he allegedly set himself afire over a family dispute at a busy square in the town, police said today.

The incident took place last evening, police said, adding that the victim has been identified as Rala Narayana alias Maraiah (32) from Navipet in Nizamabad district.

According to police, Narayana had come to Karimnagar on Monday to submit an application at the district collectorate for the sanction of a tricycle under the Praja Vaani programme.

On Wednesday, he came to the busy Telangana Chowk in the town. He was carrying some kerosene in a tin and suddenly set himself on fire in the evening, police said.

Those present at the site, managed to douse the flames and rushed him to the Government Headquarters hospital.

According to hospital authorities, Narayana suffered 80 per cent burns.

The district authorities were called in to record his dying declaration, in which, he said that he was disturbed ever since his wife left his home and went to live with her parents. He later succumbed to his burn injuries.

Further investigations are on, police said.
