Out of sheer jealousy and possessiveness, a mother put her son on fire! Reason: The lady could not tolerate her mother-in-law cuddling with her one-year-old tot.

According to a report reaching the state police headquarters, the gory incident occurred in Meerut.

After fighting bitterly with her mother-in-law, Parul was so incensed that she snatched her one-year-old baby from the lap of the former, threw the infant on the ground with a bang, poured kerosene oil and set her ablaze.

The little girl obviously died. While Parul set her kid on fire, she too got hurt. When her husband, Hemendra, tried to save the kid he too got burnt.

The girl died while the husband and wife are undergoing treatment in the hospital.

According to the state police, the woman will soon be put behind bars.
