Bhubaneswar, Jan 14:  Odisha Police on Saturday arrested a man for allegedly attempting to rape his daughter-in-law and set her on fire.

The incident took place in Rairangpur town of Odisha's Mayurbhanj district. The accused has been identified as Gopal Khemka.

The police arrested Khemka from Jamshedpur after the father of the victim lodged a complaint, on the basis of which a case was registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

According to the police, the person attempted to rape his daughter-in-law when no one else was at home and then set her ablaze after dousing her with kerosene in a bid to conceal his crime.

The woman sustained about 70 per cent injuries. Her husband also received burn injuries while trying to save her.

Both were initially admitted to a hospital in Rairangpur and later shifted to Tata Memorial Hospital in Jamshedpur as their condition deteriorated.
