Mis­cre­ants burnt an au­torick­shaw parked on the road at Khadak­pada in the wee hours of Satur­day.

A Wagon R, which was parked be­hind the au­torick­shaw, too, was charred. The car be­longed to an em­ployee of Kalyan-Dom­bivli Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, Ashok Giri.

Bhagwan Nikam had parked his au­torick­shaw near West re­gion RTO, Sahyadri, like he does ev­ery night.

Around 3am, some un­known peo­ple set the au­torick­shaw on fire. The fire was so huge that an­other the car parked be­hind the auto was also charred.

Al­though res­i­dents alerted Nikam and his fam­ily, by the time they rush to the spot, the au­torick­shaw was com­plet­edly burnt. A po­lice of­fi­cer from Khadak­pada po­lice sta­tion said: “We have make a note of it and that we have not reg­is­tered a case. We have noted that some un­known per­son set the au­torick­shaw on fire. Fur­ther probe is on.”
