Bengaluru youth sets mother ablaze after she denies him money

A 20-year-old man, allegedly, tried to set ablaze his mother after the latter refused to give him money.

The woman has been admitted to a nearby hospital while the accused, identified as Uttam Kumar, is at large.

After a heated argument between the mother-son duo over money, Kumar poured petrol on her and set her ablaze.

Kumar’s mother, reportedly, refused to give him money as she thought he would spend it on alcohol.

The woman’s husband brought her to a nearby hospital in Sadashivanagar area of Bengaluru. The victim has sustained burn injuries on her face, hand and chest.
