An officer said the woman, a resident of Bahlaki village in Garmundi district, was taken by her family members to a local hospital.

A 22-year-old woman was set on fire in Domka district of Jharkhand state early Friday morning by a man who refused a marriage proposal, a police officer said. The officer said the woman, a resident of Phalki village in Garmundi district, was taken by her family members to a local hospital.

Shivinder Thakur, a branch police officer (SDPO), Garmundi, told PTI that the accused, who is already married, has been arrested. This comes weeks after another underage girl in the area was set on fire by a man for refusing his advances. The girl died days later.

According to Thakur, “A local man, who wanted to marry the victim, entered her house on Friday morning, doused her with petrol while she was sleeping, and set her on fire.

“She was taken to Phulo Jhano Medical College and Hospital by family members, and doctors later referred her to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).”

Last month, a 14-year-old tribal girl was found hanging from a tree in Domka, where her mother claimed she had been raped and murdered. The two incidents that occurred in Domka in relation to underage girls are being investigated by various bodies, including the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and the National Commission for Women (NCW).
