PROTESTER IS FLAMING MAD.

STUNNED bystanders watch in horror as an angry protester turns himself into a fireball yesterday. Graduate Bashir Ahmed Mir doused himself in petrol and set himself alight after being unable to find work.

Onlookers doused his burning body in water and he was last night "stable" in hospital.

Bashir trained in electrohomeopathy, a 19th century alternative medicine. He torched himself in Srinagar because his degree is not recognised by the Indian Medical Council, which regards the practice as "quackery".
