On of Satish’s friend also pressurised her to marry Satish if she want to resolve the issue but she flatly refused the proposal. This angered n enrazed them. The girl was badly terrorised making her life a hell. Being poor n hapless supporting her family after the death of her father she n her mother Shauna Khatoon doing sewing to earn for the family even talked to the mother of the culprit Satish but all in vain. While giving her dying declaration to the police before succumbing to her severe burn injuries the victim said that on 30 October at 5 PM while she was going to dispose off the dirt to the nearby Dhalao , Satish and his two friends caught hold of her and sprinkled kerosene burning her. She ran helter n skelter asking for help with but nobody came. Meanwhile after hearing her screams she was immediately taken to the hospital but she died due to severe burn injuries after giving the dying declaration to the police naming all the culprits. Meanwhile the left parties leaders also visited to the bereaved family and consoled them. This horrible incident has sent shock waves all over Bihar after the mother n family members of the deceased had staged a sit in on the road with her dead body urging the police to arrest the culprits n punish them under the stringent sections of the law.
