The police in their preliminary probe learned that Munde wished to marry her but the woman had been rejecting his proposal.

“None of them studied there as both of them were doing PhD from another college in Aurangabad.”

The woman had gone to the GIS to meet an assistant professor. And when she was inside the professor’s cabin, the accused barged in, locked the door from inside and poured fuel on himself,” said the police.

He then set himself ablaze using a lighter and hugged the woman, the police said, college employees rushed in after hearing the woman’s cry for help, broke open the door and out the flames with the help of a fire extinguisher.

They rushed the man and the woman to the Government Medical College and Hospital, where he succumbed to injuries late on Monday. The woman sustained 55 per cent burn injuries and is being treated at the hospital.

Senior police inspector Geeta Bagawade from Osmanpura police station said, “We have registered a first information report (FIR) against Munde. We are probing the matter further.”
