Her in-laws poured kerosene on her and set her on fire

A woman from Aminpur of Pabna has died at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), five days after she was set on fire by her in-laws.

Shaji Khatun, 32, wife of Surman Mandal in Talimnagar village under Aminpur, died around 11pm on Tuesday at the burn unit of DMCH.

Shaji's father, Fazibur Rahman, lodged a case with Aminpur police station, against six people – including her in-laws – for setting her on fire on May 9, confirmed Sub-Inspector (SI) of Aminpur police station Ibrahim Hossain. 

According to the case statement, Shaji's husband Surman has been living abroad for the last few years. However, Surman's mother and sister would often clash with Shaji over the allowance Surman sends every month.

At one point on May 9, Surman's mother, sister and his elder brother's wife all set Shaji on fire by pouring kerosene on her. Hearing her screams, neighbours rescued her and admitted her to Pabna General Hospital.

As her situation deteriorated, she was transferred to the DMCH burn unit, where she died on Tuesday night while undergoing treatment.

Police have arrested Shaji's sister-in-law, Salma Khatun, as one of the accused in the case, the SI said.
