An ex-serviceman allegedly set his 16-year-old daughter on fire when she turned down his sexual advances, in Chichkedwayal village of Maharashtra, police said.
The accused Gulab Nivruti Kakde, who had allegedly killed the girl's mother in the same way earlier, tried to sexually assault his daughter on the night of May 5. When she resisted, he set her on fire, police said.
The girl was rushed to a hospital in Aurangabad with 95 per cent burns and later succumbed to her injuries.

The girl had been staying with her grandparents at Madwa village after the death of her mother, who was allegedly set afire by her father. Kakde, who was removed from army, had later performed a second marriage.
He had brought his daughter home on the pretext of arranging her marriage, police said.
