A 30-year-old man has been arrested in Rajasthan’s Barmer district for allegedly raping a woman and then burning her alive by pouring paint thinner on her, an official said on Saturday.

The woman, who was rushed to hospital, eventually succumbed to burn injuries.

The accused raped the woman, who was married, when she was alone in her house.

When the victim started screaming, he poured paint thinner on her and tried to burn her alive.

She was rushed to a private hospital in Balotra for treatment. Later, she was referred to Jodhpur in view of her critical condition.

The woman who in mid 30s died during treatment in Jodhpur late on Friday night.

Pachpadra DSP Madanlal Meena said the accused, Shakur Khan (30) has been arrested and “the entire matter is being investigated”.
