A Greater Noida based girl, who was raped and set on fire, died on Wednesday. The girl was allegedly set ablaze by her boyfriend on Sunday.

The incident took place in Bisrakh village in Greater Noida, following which the girl was admitted to Safdarjung hospital in Delhi where she was undergoing treatment.

The girl was forcibly taken to a secluded place by a local youth and was sexually assaulted. Preliminary inquiry revealed that she tried to alert the local villagers but the accused set her on fire in a fit of rage.

The accused was arrested on charges of rape and an attempt to murder.

He was a neighbour of the victim's family and, according to her father, had become friendly with her.

Police said the youth allegedly went to the girl's house and met her on the roof where he raped her and set her ablaze. He then fled the spot.

"The accused is a local youth and he was harassing my daughter for the last few months. We want stern action against him," victim's father had said.
