Contai (WB): A 21-year-old man was allegedly burnt alive by the family members of a girl he loved in West Bengal's East Midnapur district, police said Saturday.

The family allegedly beat up Ranjit Mondal entire Friday night before pouring petrol on him and setting him on fire, police said. Ranjit had gone to meet the girl when the incident occurred. He was a goldsmith in Delhi.

The incident came to light when the local police found out that something was burning in an open space around 3.30 am Saturday.

Ranjit's elder brother Surajit lodged an FIR with the Bhupatinagar police station following which the girl, her parents, brother and three others were detained. Police recovered Ranjit's mobile phone from the spot and seized some of his articles from the girl's home.

Ranjit used to stay with his maternal uncle nearby for several years after his mother's death and father's remarriage.
