A 32-year-old woman allegedly set on fire by relatives over a financial dispute in Jaipur’s Jamwaramgarh area succumbed to her injuries on Wednesday, police said.



Jamwaramgarh circle officer Shiv Kumar Bharadwaj said the woman, Anita, 32, gave a statement before her death, accusing 10 relatives including three women of setting her on fire on August 10. The relatives and Anita lived in the same neighbourhood.

Police said the woman was initially admitted to a local hospital in Jamwaramgarh and later shifted to Jaipur in view of her serious condition.



Bharadwaj said the families had a financial dispute and filed complaints against each other in May this year. Anita had then accused them of sexual harassment and intimidation. Four people were arrested in this case at the time.
