BJP Leader Sets His Scorpio On Fire
According to the video uploaded on YouTube, the BJP Tiruvallur West district secretary Sathish Kumar’s neighbours and relatives lodged a complaint informing the local police that his Scorpio was set ablaze by some miscreants. The incident took place on April 14, 2022, in front of his house in Madhuravoyal in Chennai. However, after examining the CCTV footage, the police arrested Sathish for being involved in this himself. The CCTV footage revealed that he had used a petrol bomb to light up his Scorpio with the aim of claiming insurance. A man is visible in the video spraying something on the car and the Sathish igniting the fire using the petrol bomb.
During the interrogation, Sathish confessed to the crime and also offered the reason for it. He explained that his wife wanted to buy some gold and he didn’t have money for it. His wife forced him to sell the car off but he came up with the ingenious idea of setting his car on fire to claim the insurance. The amount that he hoped to receive as compensation was to be used to buy gold for his wife. However, all of his plans fell through when he was caught in the CCTV camera that was installed nearby.
