A 20-year-old woman in India was set on fire by her parents and brother after she refused to marry the man of their choice.

The family of the woman, identified only as Tasim, had been searching for a groom for her for a long time. When they finalized a match, she told them she was in love with someone else, following which there were frequent fights in the house, Times Now News reported.

During one such disagreement Tuesday night, Tasim’s parents and younger brother poured petrol on her and set her on fire. The incident took place in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.

"The 20-year-old Tasim said that her parents had been seeking matches for her marriage for long but she kept on rejecting all of them. She told them she was in love with a boy but her parents were opposed to her marrying him and were forcing her to marry someone else. Due to this there were many quarrels in the house and on Tuesday evening there was a verbal brawl in the family," a police officer told Times Now News.

The victim’s sister rushed her to the hospital, where she was being treated. Her exact condition was not known.

A police complaint was filed, and the family members were taken into custody Wednesday, The New Indian Express reported. 

"On intimation, we reached the hospital and recorded her statement. A case of attempt to murder was registered against the woman’s parents and younger brother," the officer said.

Earlier this month, a woman in the southern Indian state of Kerala succumbed to burn injuries after her live-in partner set her on fire during an argument over a social media post. The victim used to frequently post videos on Instagram even though her partner opposed it. This led to frequent arguments between the two. During one such argument, the man allegedly poured kerosene over her and set her on fire with a lighter. She was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition by her neighbors and the following day, she succumbed to injuries. The accused was taken into custody and charged.
