A man set himself ablaze in front of the White House on Wednesday afternoon. In the most recent update, he has died as a result of his severe injuries from the fire. The US Park Police confirmed this sad news. The US Secret Service is also working on the same.
The man was identified as Arnav Gupta who belonged to Bethesda, Maryland.
The spokesperson of the fire department of Washington DC narrated the events saying the first set of responders successfully managed to put out the fire. They were unsure and were trying to figure out the kind of accelerant the man in question had used.
The motive behind the man’s drastic move is not clear but it is being anticipated that he did so in protest of Trump.
The setting-on-fire part is not as shocking as the fact that man was walking calmly around the lawn at the White House.
