Yesterday afternoon, when the girl was alone at her house, the 16-year-old boy came to her, and after a verbal spat, he poured kerosene on her and set her on fire, a police officer said. She was rushed to a hospital in Kota, where she died during treatment, he said, adding the body would be handed over to the family after post-mortem. The boy fled the spot after the incident and the police are trying to apprehend him, the officer said.
