New Delhi: A Delhi man set himself ablaze in protest after a mobile service center refused to replace a faulty product sold to him.

The incident took place in Delhi’s M2K area on Friday afternoon.

The 40-year-old sprayed petrol from a bottle and set himself on fire in front of the Oppo mobile service centre around 12.20 pm, police said. He is currently undergoing treatment at Baba Saheb Ambedkar hospital.

DCP (Rohini) PK Mishra said, “His statement was recorded at the hospital. He said he purchased the mobile about a month ago from a store near his house in Prahladpur. He gave it to his niece, a school student, for her online classes. After a brief period, the phone malfunctioned.”

Mishra said that the man approached the service centre for replacement on November 6 but was declined, citing policy, by the company. “He further spoke to them a few times but to no avail. Today morning, he premeditated that if his request is not addressed, he will set himself on fire,” said Mishra.

“He bought the phone for his sister’s daughter. She is in class XII and needed a phone for online classes. Her mother passed away over a month ago. My husband was very attached to her and before she passed away, she had asked him to take care of her daughter. He bought the niece a phone for Rs 14,000,” said the victim’s wife.
