Mumbai: Taking cue from the recent incident of a woman setting herself on fire, demanding clearance of her deceased husband's dues, the local civic body, today directed all departments to resolve pending matters to avoid any such cases.

Renuka Mahadik (25), today, succumbed to her injuries after she set herself on fire outside MCGM headquarters early this week. She was trying to secure a municipal job and receive her husband, Ravindra, a civic employee's, pension dues.

"We have asked all departments to look if there are any such pending cases. Such cases should be resolved at the earliest to avoid any similar incident like Renuka's," Additional Municipal Commissioner Manisha Mhaiskar said.

Mahadik, a resident of Khetwadi in Girgaon, on January 18, had set herself on fire outside the BMC headquarters in south Mumbai.

"The investigations are on this matter. The officers are carrying out in-depth investigations to ascertain the claims put forward by Renuka," Mhaiskar said.

It would be premature to say about our next course of action as the investigations are on. The reports will come by tomorrow. Then we will be in a position to say, she said.

Renuka was accompanied by her brother Vikas Salve when the incident occurred. She was rushed to G T hospital, from there she was taken to J J hospital with 70 per cent burn injuries.
