A jealous man threw gasoline over a 43 year old woman at a market in Nakorn Pathom, Thailand on Saturday, and set her alight.

Traders at the Lamphaya market managed to put out the fire as the assailant fled on a motorcycle.

A man was slightly hurt in the incident.

Muang police responded with rescue services and took Uraiwan Inthrajak to hospital.

Witnesses said that a man aged about 50 arrived at the market on a motorcycle and threw gasoline over Uraiwan.

Police understand that the assailant is the new love interest of the victim and he was angry when her former husband attempted to get back together with her.

The hunt for the assailant is now on.
