A 25-year-old-man was burnt to death allegedly by the family members of a woman he was in love with at a village in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district, police said today.

The incident occurred at in Sagar district late on Thursday night and four members of the woman’s family have been arrested in this connection, Superintendent of Police (SP) Atul Singh told news agency Press Trust of India.

The 23-year-old woman with whom the man was in a relationship, also suffered burn injuries. She claimed that the man accidentally caught fire in a bid to set her ablaze after pouring kerosene on her at her place, while her family members tried to rescue both of them, the senior police officer said.

The man died during treatment at a local hospital on Friday. In his dying declaration, he alleged that he had got a call on Thursday night and he was asked to visit the woman’s house for a meeting.
