A man died of severe burns here on Thursday after a woman he was in a relationship with allegedly threw acid on him in a fit of rage as he was getting married to someone else, police said.
Sonam, a nurse at a private hospital here, and Devendra, an assistant at a pathology lab, knew each other for a long time and were in a relationship, they said.
