The 24-year-old woman who had allegedly attempted suicide along with man outside the Supreme Court succumbed to injuries today after suffering 85% burns as per news reports.

The 27-year-old man had sustained 65% burn injuries had succumbed to injuries on Saturday morning, PTI had reported.

After the alleged incident, both were thereafter admitted to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

The woman, native of Uttar Pradesh Ghazipur had allegedly been raped by Bahujan Samaj Party MP Atul Rai in 2019, police said.

It is pertinent to mention that before setting themselves ablaze, the man and woman went live on Facebook in which she while disclosing her identity had alleged that she had filed a rape case against Rai in 2019. The woman in her video had also alleged that some senior officers and others were supporting the accused.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Deepak Yadav had at that time said that an inquiry was underway to ascertain the exact reason, but it was suspected that she attempted suicide as she feared being framed in fraud case by the accused party.

Woman in her live video had also claimed that a non-bailable warrant was issued against her by a local court in UP and that she was also summoned by the judge.

The woman in March had filed a plea in the Supreme Court seeking transfer of her rape case for a fair trial from Allahabad to Delhi on grounds of her threat to life and later in August, a local court in Varanasi had issued a non-bailable warrant against her in a case of forgery based on a complaint filed by the brother of the accused MP.
