Lucknow: A 35-year-old Uttar Pradesh woman succumbed to burn injuries Tuesday, days after she alleged being set ablaze by five men on resisting harassment by them, police said.

According to a complaint filed by the woman's mother, she was returning home on November 24 when the men attacked her in Shahjahanpur's Tilhar area.

The woman was taken to a hospital in Bareilly where she succumbed to injuries on Tuesday.

The police said it has registered a case against the accused under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.

In a statement given to a magistrate, the woman before her death mentioned the names of the five men who had attacked her.
