By TC News Desk

Agartala, 2nd May 2024:   A tragic incident took place when a young housewife named Pooja Das (19) lost her life in a fire. The incident took place following a family dispute.

Pooja Das, who was involved in a love affair with Pralay Debnath of Ambassa three to four years back, married him despite being a minor at the time. The couple’s union, which began in the Aralia area of the capital, soon turned sour as they frequently quarreled over trivial matters.

The situation escalated on May 16 when, after a visit to her paternal home, Pooja returned to her in-laws’ residence. A heated argument ensued with her husband and mother-in-law regarding her visit to her father’s house. The altercation took a devastating turn when Pooja was engulfed in flames.

In a desperate attempt to save her life, Pooja was rushed to Kulai Hospital. However, her condition deteriorated and she was referred to GB Hospital. Despite the medical team’s best efforts, Pooja’s battle with death ended in tragedy.

The aftermath of the incident saw Pooja’s grief-stricken father Dipak Das facing the media demanded justice. He called for severe punishment for the accused husband Praloy Debnath and mother-in-law Prabhati Debnath.

Contradicting the allegations, Prabhati Debnath stated that she was at the market during the incident and her son Praloy was away for work. The investigation into the exact circumstances of the fire is ongoing.
