By Our Correspondent

Agartala December 03 ,2019 : Amidst the courtywide outrage over the gang-rape and murder of veterinary doctor Priyanka Reddy in Hyderabad, another young and innocent housewife Salma Akhtar (18) died by burning in south Boxanagar yesterday. Writhing in intense death pang caused by severe burn injuries Salma breathed her last in Agartala’s GBP hospital yesterday in the evening. Salma's husband Al Amin Mia and brother in law Sohail Alam , the two culprits involved in dousing Salma with petrol are have been absconding . 

Police sources from Bishalgarh said that two years ago Salma Akhtar , daughter of Nasu Mia in Ratan Nagar village under Bishalgarh subdivision, had been socially married to Al Amin Mia of south Boxanagar, son of Gani mia. From the every beginning Salma had a turbulent conjugal life as her brother in law Sohail had cast his evil glad eye on her and would make advances to her. Similarly, her husband Al Amin Mia also had a running carnal affair with her elder sister in law. Whenever Salma would complain to her parents-in-law about the teasing caused by her brother in law Sohal, she was chided for telling untruths.

Sources said that recently Salma's husband Al Amin Mia had asked his father in law and Salma's father Nasu Mia for Rs 1 lakh which the poor man refused to give on grounds of poverty. This led to increased physical torture on Sama by her husband as well as by her parents in law. Exchange of heated words , hurling of abuses in the house had been a regular feature. In the midst of this, yesterday Salma's husband Al Amin Mia and brother in law Sohail took advantage of Salma’s loneliness in the house and poured kerosene on her whole body and then set her ablaze. 

Hearing her cries of agony, the neighbours rushed to the house and shifted her to Boxanagar hospital but Salma's husband and brother in law had absconded from the  spot. The neighbours managed to shift critically injured Salma to GBP hospital where she breathed her last yesterday in the evening . Her dead body bearing severe burn injuries was taken back to her ancestral home in Bishalgarh and buried by performing religious rites. The horrible incident has cast a shadow of gloom and shock all over Bishalgarh and Boxanagar though the two main culprits Al Amin Mia and Sohail Mia are reported to have fled across the border to Bangladesh. A delegation of womens wing of Congress visited the house of Salma today and conveyed condolences to the bereaved family. They also met in deputation with police to press for exemplary punishment for the two culprits, Ali Amin Mia and his younger brother Sohail Mia.
