On Monday, 7-year-old Dahisar resident and his friend have been arrested by Dahisar police for allegedly setting neighbour’s house ablaze during the wee hours. According to Police sources, both the arrested persons have been identified as Chandu Saravayya and Sanjay on the complaint of Rajesh Gupta (43).
Source report reveals that , Chandu and Gupta both were into some dispute which led to the incident. Gupta's wife Meeradevi had brought a new sewing machine to earn money from home and as Chandu's wife Prafulla was already in a similar business, they thought Meeradevi may take over all their stitching orders from the locality. This led to a quarrel between both families and Gupta warned Chandu’s wife, Prafulla, to stay away from his wife and their house.
Police official from Dahisar police station said that "As per a complaint filed by Gupta, Samta Nagar police registered a case under Section 341, 436, 440, 504, 506 and 34 of IPC,". "After an inquiry, it was found that Chandu and his friend Sanjay had committed the crime and were arrested. They were produced before the court and remanded judicial custody.
While, the argument then led to a scuffle between both family members in which Meeradevi fell on to the ground and lost consciousness after which she was taken to the hospital. The feud between the families did not end there. On the very same day, a person set Gupta’s house door on fire around midnight while they were asleep. When they shouted for help, other neighbours rushed to extinguish the fire and helped them escape. Gupta could smell the smoke inside the house and when he tried to open the door, he figure out that it was locked from the outside. He opened the windows and shouted for help. Meanwhile, a police team arrived at the crime scene.
