A woman died of injuries Tuesday after being stabbed and burnt by miscreants in Odisha's Ganjam district, police said
Police have arrested four people and launched a crackdown to nab another suspect.
According to police, the miscreants attacked Pranati Das, 30, at Rambha town, about 150 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, Monday evening when she was on her way home.
The attackers stabbed her and then set her afire after pouring kerosene on her. A few passersby took her to a hospital.
As her condition deteriorated, she was shifted to a hospital in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh where she died due to injuries.
"We have arrested four people. Efforts are on to nab another accused," District Superintendent of Police A.K. Singh told IANS.
"We will complete our investigation soon and file a chargesheet in the case within 15-20 days," he said.
Das had received threats in the past as well.
