Her condition, the treating doctors said, was being monitored constantly. "Rekha has suffered 25 percent thermal burns which includes her face and respiratory region. She is admitted in ICU of the burn ward and her condition is being monitored by a team of doctors consistently," said a senior doctor at the Safdarjung hospital.
Her husband, Jitender, 31, has sustained ten percent superficial burns on his hands and is out of danger. "He was treated on OPD basis and is non-serious," the doctor said.
The hospital authorities said that their two children, two-and-a-half year son, Vaibhav and 11-month-old girl Divya, were brought dead to the hospital. The shocking incident occurred at around 2.30 am at Sunped village on the outskirts of Delhi when the attackers allegedly poured petrol from the window and set their house ablaze while the family was sleeping inside.

A religious programme was being held nearby in the village at that time. 11 persons, including a father-son duo, have been booked on murder, rioting and other charges, a police spokesman said.
