Girl`s father arrested on charge of setting youth on fire
Kolkata: One day after a youth was allegedly set ablaze by a `minor` girl`s family, for claiming her to be his wife, the Kolkata Police on Sunday arrested her father in the south-west parts of the city.
Rajibul Islam, who had earlier eloped with the `minor` and lived with her till she returned back few days back, insisted the girl be allowed to meet the 21-year old who is his wife, police said.
As the family refused maintaining the girl was below 18-years, an altercation broke out again on Saturday.
Later when Rajibul was on way home on Saturday midnight, he was set ablaze after kerosene sprinkled on his body by four-five persons at Satghara by-lane in Port area, police said.
