MUMBAI: A Virar based man working as a driver was termed to 10 years rigorous imprisonment (RI) for allegedly setting his wife ablaze by pouring diesel in 2012. The diminishing revelation of the victim nailed the charged.

Open prosecutor Ujwala Moholkar depended on the oral and composed passing on revelation of the victim who had sustained more than 80 per cent burns. At around 11 pm, Ramji poured diesel on the victim’s body and set her ablaze. Their two minor kids were sleeping soundly.

In her dying declaration, Durgavati expressed that her significant other was pestering her for a bike. He needed her to convey cash from her folks to purchase a bike. She expressed that her better half was unpredictable at work and used to spend his compensation on alcohol.

On the pivotal night, after he set the victim ablaze, she came up short on the house shouting for offer assistance. Neighbors acted the hero and drenched the fire. They place her in an auto rickshaw and took her to a close-by hospital before admitting to Bhagwati hospital in Borivli.
