After hanging between life and death for about a week, Sadhna Sonawane, a resident of Malwani, who had been set ablaze by her husband, succumbed to her 90 per cent burn injuries yesterday.

After an altercation, Sonawane's drunken husband Sunil had poured kerosene over the eight-month pregnant woman and set her on fire.

On Friday, she delivered a stillborn infant, which also died within her womb after being exposed to the high temperatures of the fire ('Unlucky 11/11 snatches baby from burnt mother's womb').

After returning from Aurangabad, Sunil was arrested by the Malwani police last night.
