De­nied a ride, youth burns eight ve­hi­cles

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Thane: Re­peat­edly re­fused a mo­tor­cy­cle ride by his un­cle, a 23-year-old set the two-wheeler ablaze in an act of vengeance that de­stroyed three other mo­tor­cy­cles and four au­torick­shaws parked in Lok­manya Na­gar early on Mon­day, said the po­lice. The youth, Ajay Bum­bak of Indira Na­gar, was ar­rested on the ba­sis of prima fa­cie ev­i­dence and his con­fes­sion.

Bum­bak’s fa­ther had bought the bike but it was be­ing used by his un­cle, said the po­lice. “Bum­bak wanted the twowheeler back in his cus­tody as the two-wheeler was in his fa­thers’ name and he had partly paid the in­stal­ments,” se­nior in­spec­tor Su­la­bha Patil said.

Bum­bak had got into an ar­gu­ment with his un­cle and threat­ened him with un­pleas­ant con­se­quences for re­fus­ing him use of the bike. Around 3 am on Mon­day, Bum­bak went to the parked mo­tor­cy­cle, pulled out the fuel pipe and set it on fire, said the po­lice of­fi­cer.
