Woman sets ailing husband on fire in Bengal

No longer able to bear the rising medical expenses and repeated quarrels over her ailing husband being bedridden, Tara Bibi poured kerosene on her husband Zakir Hussain and set him on fire. Hussain was rescued by his neighbours who said the couple had frequent quarrels over Hussain's ill health and she openly wished her husband would die. The neighbours found Hussain on fire in the house that was locked from outside. Hussain was admitted to hospital with 70 percent burns and Tara Bibi has been detained for questioning.
