In a disturbing incident, a drunk auto driver set his wife ablaze in Pahadisharif, an area on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Sunday night, for not serving him an omelette.
According to a report in the Times of India, the auto driver identified as Naresh, went home on Sunday night in a highly inebriated condition, and asked his wife Sandeshamma, to prepare an omelette.
The report adds:
Sandeshamma quickly made an omelette and kept it near Naresh's bed. However, before Naresh could get up, his younger son ate the omelette. An infuriated Naresh doused Sandeshamma with kerosene and set her ablaze.
Sandeshamma was rushed to a nearby hospital with severe burns and her condition is critical.
The police later registered a case against Naresh, who is currently absconding, and are on the lookout for him.
