Bangalore: Medical student set on fire allegedly by chain snatchers dies in hospital
Bangalore:  A 22-year-old medical student who was set on fire in Karnataka last week  allegedly by a group of men who tried to rob him off his gold chain, has died at a hospital in Bangalore.

Kameshwar Prasad, a final year MBBS student of Devaraj Urs Medical College in Kolar district, 100 kilometres from Bangalore, had suffered 70 per cent burn injuries.

He was attacked late at night on November 12 when a group of men tried to steal his chain while he was returning to his room. They set him on fire as he resisted and tried to call for help.

No arrests have been made in the case so far.

The police say they are trying to find out if personal enmity was the reason for the attack. The cops have reportedly found a note from his room, which states that he was "disgusted with life". The note has been sent to forensic experts to ascertain if it was his hand writing.
