Kollam | A 38-year-old woman was set ablaze by her husband on Monday at Parippally near here, after which he slit his throat and jumped into a nearby well, police said.
Nadeera, a Pallickal resident was killed this morning at an Akshaya Kendra where she works.
Police said her husband set her on fire after pouring a flammable liquid at her workplace.
"He escaped from there and slit his throat after which he jumped into a nearby well and died," police said.

Raheem was released on bail four days ago in a domestic abuse case filed by Nadeera and another case registered under the Juvenile Justice Act.
