A man invited her girlfriend home, then raped and burnt alive to death in Bihar's Khagaria district.
The man has been arrested on the basis of the woman's statement that she gave to the police in hospital before she succumbed to her injuries.
Bhawani Shankar, a resident of Temtha village in Parbatta, Khagaria, and the victim were in a relationship since past few months, a report in Hindi daily Hindustan said.
The woman had been pressuring Shankar to marry her but he refused to oblige on some pretext or the other.
On Saturday evening, Shankar called the woman home to discuss something 'important'. He raped her and then went to the other room where his mother was sleeping. Shankar told her

mother that the woman had barged into their house.
She was then thrown out of the house.
The next morning, Bhawani Shankar reached her girlfriend's house. She was alone. He dragged the woman into the bathroom, poured kerosene and burnt her alive.
Shankar fled from the spot as the victim screamed in pain. When the neighbours rushed to the house they found the woman burning. She was taken to a local hospital and the police was informed about the incident.
Lying on the hospital bed, writhing in pain, the victim revealed all to the police. She told the police how Shankar used to exploit her physically while promising marriage.
A joint team of Parbatta and Naugachia police has  arrested Bhawani Shankar from Jhandapur.
