A 32 year old Indian man set himself on fire in front of his wife's home in a Mumbai suburb Ville Parle after he was beaten up by her and her relatives.
The man used to frequent his wife's house to meet his children who were very attached to him.
One day when he went to meet his wife on her request, she and her entire family assaulted him in front of the neighbors.
The man could not take the public humiliation. He went back to his car and drained the fuel into a 2 liter bottle, doused himself with petrol and set himself ablaze in front of his wife and her family.
The victim fought for his life for two days despite severe burns but lost the battle of his life.
