AU Fire News: Australian wife ignites husbands crotch

Victim dies twenty days after Adelaide Crotch fire incident, 85% of his body was burned.

Satish Narayan, 47, an engineer, lost his battle to survive at the Royal Adelaide Hospital yesterday, 20 days after sustaining burns to most of his body.

The incident has now been declared a major crime by police and it is likely his wife, Rajini, will face a upgraded charge of manslaughter or murder.

Mrs Narayan had been charged with causing serious harm to her husband, arson and endangering her children.

Police have alleged Narayan's wife doused his genitals with ethanol(methylated spirit) and then set him on fire about 5:30 a.m. on Dec. 7.

It is believed a major blaze was sparked at the couple's townhouse when Narayan jumped out of bed and knocked over the bottle of methylated spirit.

Narayan suffered burns to 85 per cent of his body.

It is believed the Narayans only shifted to Adelaide from Canberra a few months ago, after Mr Narayan landed a job working on the Air Warfare Destroyer project.
