A newly-married engineering student, Y. Mounika, 20, and her classmate Shaik Mohd. Rafi, 22, who immolated themselves in Narsingi two days ago, succumbed to their burns on Thursday.

They were third year engineering students of K.G. Reddy engineering college in Moinabad. A resident of Rahmatnagar, Mounika was reportedly in love with Rafi but her family elders turned down their marriage proposal, the police said.

Mounika’s family elders performed her marriage with close relative Ranga Swamy Reddy on May 29.

Mounika died while undergoing treatment on Thursday morning while Rafi succumbed to his burns in the evening.
