A 20 year old Pakistani woman, Sonia Bibi, died after a rejected suitor set her on fire for refusing his marriage proposal. She was admitted to a hospital last month, where she told police that her former lover had doused her with petrol and set her alight for turning down his proposal.

The incident took place in a remote village of Multan district in central Punjab province. About 45 to 50 per cent of her body had been burned in the attack. Her injuries became infected and ultimately killed her. Police have since arrested a 24-year-old suspect.
