"The team broke open the door and found a man lying on the floor with burnt material like a chair, some clothes, and an 'angeethi,'" an officer said.

Prima facie, it appears that the man set himself on fire, but a probe is on into whether he caught fire through an 'angeethi,' or brazier, burning inside, the officer said.
