Police have arrested the accused person and the investigation is ongoing
The teenager sustained more than 90 percent burns over her body in Monday's attack and died in hospital early Wednesday, the investigating officer told AFP.
According to the Indian police, the investigation is ongoing and the accused, a 19-year-old, has being arrested.
The accused has been charged with a slew of offences including rape and murder.
"The body has been sent for postmortem. We are waiting for the report,", a police officer told AFP.
Women's rights activists accuse police of often overlooking complaints of stalking, which they say only emboldens the perpetrators.
