Indian woman in US sets husband on fire

An NRI woman has allegedly set her husband on fire and locked him up in the restroom for undisclosed reason. The 25-year-old Shriya Bhiman Patel, a US resident, was married to a 29-year-old man and they reportedly had a happy married life.

On Thursday, Shriya Bhiman, promised her husband that she would give him a hot oily massage. She, however, replaced the oil with gasoline. After she applied gasoline on her husband, she had set him on fire and locked the room.

The local police came to know about this incident after they answered a family disturbance call. The police said they got to know about huge cries of a man and gasoline smell.

The police, who plunged into the action, arrested Shriya Bhiman. She was shifted to Tavis County Jail in Texas and the police didn’t reveal the reasons behind the murder.

The accused was booked under the charges of aggravated assault, first degree felony and arson. The victim was air lifted to an army medical centre where he has been undergoing treatment. His condition was said to be critical as he suffered 70 per cent burns.

This incident even came as a shock to the locals too. (Phani)
