Surrender in Shillong burn case

Shillong, Feb. 15: A 35-year-old man who was allegedly involved in setting a woman on fire last week, surrendered before police today.

On February 9, two unidentified men set the 40-year-old woman ablaze inside a forest near the Assam Regimental Centre (ARC) firing range at Madanriting on the outskirts of the city. She sustained 20 per cent burn injuries, mostly on her hands and legs.

Police said she had gone to the forest with four acquaintances.

Today, Willander Lamare, a resident of Madanriting (Block F), turned up at Madanriting police station around 1pm and surrendered, East Khasi Hills superintendent of police M. Kharkrang said. The February 9 incident was triggered by a quarrel, the police added.

The police had earlier registered a case under Sections 307 and 34 of the IPC.
