Amritsar/IBNS: In a horrifying incident in Punjab, a pregnant woman was set on fire allegedly by her husband following an argument on Friday.


23-year-old Pinky, who was six months pregnant and was expecting twins, died on the spot, according to the police.

Police said the couple had a heated argument on Friday after which the man tied Pinky to a bed and set her on fire in a fit of rage.

The incident was reported on Friday from Bullenangal village near Amritsar.

"Sukhdev and Pinky had a strained relationship and would quarrel over various issues. On Friday too, they had a heated argument after which Sukhdev killed Pinky and fled," officials said.

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has sought a detailed report from the Punjab Police.

"Appalled by the horrifying incident in Amritsar where a man allegedly set his pregnant wife on fire. The brutality of this act is unimaginable. Hon'ble Chairperson NCW @sharmarekha has written a letter to DGP Punjab to arrest the perpetrator and submit an action report in three days. #StopDomesticViolence," the women's panel said on X - earlier known as Twitter.

Sukhdev was on the run after the incident. He was arrested by the Punjab Police on Saturday evening.
