The police have arrested a resident of Rajiv Colony in Sector 17 for setting afire three motorcycles parked in his neighbourhood on the night of Friday. The suspect has been identified as Akshay, alias Golu.

The police said there was enmity between the neighbours. “After witnessing flames outside around 2 am, I, my brother and father rushed out. We found our vehicles were on fire. Akshay was at the spot who said he set our bikes on fire to teach us a lesson,” said Sunil Maurya, who owned one of the three bikes.

The other two bikes belonged to his brother Sonu and neighbour Suraj.

“The suspect was annoyed over an old fight. He poured petrol on the motorcycles and set them afire. He fled the spot,” said ASI Arvind.

“With the help of neighbours, we brought the flames under control. Sonu suffered burns on his hand and face while dousing the fire,” said the complainant.

A case has been registered under Section 435 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) of the IPC.
