Hyderabad, Dec 22 (IBNS) : A 22-year-old woman died on Friday a day after she was set on fire near Hyderabad  by a former colleague who kept stalking her, NDTV reported.

Sandhya Rani, a company receptionist working in Secunderabad, was on her way home from work around 6.45 pm when Karthik, a former colleague,  came on a motorbike and stopped to speak to her.

As their conversation turned heated Karthik suddenly  pulled out a can and poured kerosene on Sandhya. He set her on fire and drove away before it could register on witnesses, NDTV said quoting police.

On spotting the young woman in flames and screaming on the road, people rushed to her and put out the fire. But Sandhya, who  suffered 60 per cent burns, died in the hospital on Friday morning.

According to police investigation,  Karthik had been stalking and harassing Sandhya for months.

He has reportedly told the police that she didn't reciprocate his feelings.
