Dalit farmer burnt alive

In a bizarre incident, a Dalit farmer was burnt alive by some miscreants before robbing him of Rs 30 when he was returning home after selling potatoes in Doddathagalli near Hoskote around 8.30 pm. The victim Muniyappa (55) of Hosahalli succumbed to his burn injuries at Victoria Hospital.

Muniyappa was returning from Kattigenahalli after selling potatoes. The killers poured kerosene on Muniyappa and set him ablaze. Muniyappa then managed to douse the fire himself and went to Chinnigerayapur, where his relatives admitted him to a hospital. Last night, he was shifted to Victoria Hospital, where he succumbed today. Kadugodi police visited the spot.
