Gurgaon man sets himself ablaze in ACP’s office over FIR by wife in Gurgaon

Gurgaon, May 20, 2015 |
A 33-Year-old man on Tuesday allegedly set himself on fire in the office of Gurgaon ACP where he was called in by the women’s cell following a complaint against him by his wife Kavita. The man, identified as Navdeep Kumar Mehta, has suffered 70 per cent burn injuries. He was first rushed to the city civil hospital here, but was later shifted to the Safdarjung Hospital. A high-level inquiry has been set up to investigate into the incident.
The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon at the ACP’s office on Khandsa Road. According to sources, Mehta’s repeated threats that he would set himself on fire went unheeded for several minutes. Ultimately, he executed the threat, despite presence of several police personnel.
Sources said Mehta’s wife had lodged a complaint against him under section 498A of the Indian Penal Code. It was on the basis of this complaint that the police women’s cell had called Mehta for questioning. However, no sooner Mehta arrived at the police precinct, an altercation broke out between him and his in-laws who were present there.
According to eyewitnesses, during the heated exchange Mehta threatened that he would set himself on fire. His in-laws allegedly retorted by saying that he was free to do whatever he wanted. Clearly incited by the harsh words, Mehta ran to his vehicle and doused himself with petrol. He returned to the gate of the precinct carrying a matchbox and a bottle of petrol. A scuffle broke out when someone tried to snatch the matchbox from him, which fell on the road. But Mehta managed to pick up the matchbox before setting himself on fire. He then ran inside the women’s cell office and reportedly grabbed his mother-in-law, who got injured. Mehta then collapsed on the floor of the office, sources said.
Mehta, who supplied medicines in Gurgaon, married Kavita in 2008. However, their relationship got soured in the last few years, allegedly due to constant interference of Mehta’s mother-in-law.
SHO of city police station Vishal Kumar told Mail Today that Mehta was called in to the women’s cell to ascertain his views in connection with the complaint lodged against him.
When asked how Mehta managed to attempt suicide despite police presence, Kumar said, “It was indeed a huge security lapse. The inquiry committee will investigate into the roles of the police personnel who were present at the office. Action will be taken if needed.”
