The Maduravoyal police collected the CCTV camera footage from the nearby houses and tried to trace the suspects involved in the incident.

In a Case of Arson inquiries revealed that Bharatiya Janata Party Functionary torched his own car in Chennai’s Maduravoya.

A car went up in flames in residential locality and police went to the house of Satish Kumar in Krishna Nagar in Maduravoyal and asked him the reason for not complaining for the same.

“He initially told us that some family members set his car on fire,” said a police officer of Maduravoyal police station.

The car had been parked outside his house on an interior road.

“On suspicion that it was him, later we conducted a detailed enquiry after we had gone through CCTV footage and he confessed that he had torched his own car. Which is why he didn’t file a complaint. He did it due to family issues but we didn’t get into that,” Police Officer said.

The Bharatiya Janata Party Functionary was booked for creating nuisance to the public and arrested on Saturday.

Local reports stated that he burnt his own car out of the frustration when his wife was repeatedly asking to buy gold.
