The police spokesperson said the suspect, stalked the wife, Lateefat, who avoided him several times.
He was said to have gone to her house last Thursday and threatened to burn her alive, as she fled.
According to the report: “Mr. Ponle went back to the victim’s house on Saturday night and met her praying. He poured petrol on her in the room and set her ablaze, but the woman managed to grab him to ensure they burned together until people intervened. They were rushed to a nearby hospital where the woman was confirmed dead.”
Initially, the man survived and was arrested by the police, but according to the police, the man also died later, on Sunday.
