Bansode, the applicant set his daughter-Shilpa, ablaze on 25th October

2018, after pouring kerosene on her person. The complainant has alleged

Lakhs from him, pursuant to which, he gave the applicant Rupees Two

Lakhs. He has further alleged that the applicant and his family members

to be quarrel between them. He has alleged that on 20 th October 2018, the

applicant quarreled with his daughter for not giving tea and thereafter

abused her and poured kerosene on her person and set her ablaze. The

complainant’s daughter-Shilpa’s three statements were recorded, two

statements were recorded on the very day i.e. on 20 th October 2018, which

completely exonerate the complainant. Shilpa (deceased) has stated that

there was a quarrel between the applicant and her and that in a fit of anger,

she poured kerosene on her person and set herself ablaze. She has stated

that the applicant had left the house and gone for his work. She has

specifically stated that she has no complaint against any person. It appears
