I am your hubby and if I say burn yourself to death, you must do it without hesitation

IN a gruesome incident of dowry harassment in Trichy, about 300km from Chennai, a farmer forced his wife to torch herself in front of their seven-year-old son.

The man had allegedly threatened to burn the child alive if she refused, Tamil Nesan reported.

The child's grandparents, accompanied by the boy, handed a petition to the district officer to seek police action against Kamala Hassan, from Gandhi Nagar. S. Sababathi reported that his daughter S. Buvaneswari, 30, was forced by Kamala to set herself ablaze on March 1.
