Amethi Women Set Themselves on Fire Over Police Inaction


A woman and her daughter from Amethi set themselves on fire in front of the UP Chief Minister’s office on Friday over police inaction in a land dispute case.

The two women sustained burn injuries and were admitted to the civil hospital, where their condition is said to be critical.

The incident was reported at around 5.40 pm in the high security zone of Luckown as it houses the assembly as well as CM’s office.

The police personnel posted there swung into action as they saw the women engulfed in flames and rescued them, they said.

A video of the incident went viral on social media.

“They had some dispute in Jamo area in Amethi. They had come here but didn”t approach anyone and instead tried to immolate themselves in front of Lok Bhawan,” a senior police officer said.
