A woman was in a critical condition after she allegedly set herself on fire at her house in the Rizvia area in Nazimabad No. 1 on Tuesday.

The 42-year-old, identified as Shagufta, wife of Ramzan, was initially taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and later transported to the Civil Hospital. Doctors termed her condition critical, saying 90 per cent of her body had suffered burns. Police said the woman was brought to hospital by her relatives, who told them that Shagufta was mentally sick and attempted to end her life by setting herself on fire.
