Woman sets herself, four children on fire in Uttar Pradesh
Saturday December 27, 2014 11:25 AM, IANS

A woman set herself and her four children on fire in Bulandshahr, apparently due to a financial crisis, police said Saturday.

The tragedy took place in Kuryawali village Friday when the woman had an altercation with her vegetable vendor husband for not earning enough to sustain such a big family. She then doused herself and her four children with kerosene and immolated herself.

All five, including four children died on the spot.

The incident happened when the husband was not present at the residence. Neighbours told police that the couple used to quarrel quite often on account of monetary constraints.

District police chief Anant Deo Tiwari said prima facie the incident appeared to be the outcome of a financial crisis and domestic strife but added that they were questioning the husband to know more.

The bodies have been sent for post-mortem.
