When Rahul Gandhi toured Assam three days ago, a female ward member in Jorhat, named Bonti attracted wide media attention when she kissed the Congress scion on his cheek. Now reports are coming in that the woman has been burnt to death by her husband yesterday. According the India Today, apparently she had to face a huge argument with her husband on Wednesday evening after the incident. The husband felt humiliated with all the attention and the altercation led to a serious fight between the couple. In an attempt to kill himself, the man set himself ablaze and his wife too. Both were rushed to hospital with serious burn injuries. Though the husband is still battling for life, the woman succumbed to her injuries.
A simple act of showing affection led to the loss of a life in a very shameful show of continuing ignorant egotistic Indian male mentality, very sad indeed!
