Lucknow : The woman who had suffered over 85 percent burn injuries after setting herself ablaze Tuesday in front of Utter Pradesh Vidhan Sabha died on Wednesday night.

Anjana Tiwari a.k.a. Aisha, a resident of Maharajganj, had changed her name after converting to Islam to marry Asif with whom she had fallen in love after divorce from her ex-husband Akhilesh Tiwari.

She had alleged Asif had gone to Saudi Arabia for his job and his family had been harassing her.

A senior police official, who did not wish to be named, said the matter was under investigation.

The Lucknow police has arrested Congress leader Alok Prasad, son of former Governor of Rajasthan Sukhdev Prasad, for allegedly provoking Anjana to immolate herself. Alok's location was found to be around the Vidhan Sabha on the day and time of the incident.
