Prosecution witnesses to be heard in arson case

Prosecution witnesses will give evidence on October 3, 2018, in an arson case, in which a man allegedly torched his friend’s father’s car following a dispute over BD50.

The dispute began after his friend took a dig at the accused of stealing BD50, which he denied. The accused could not stand this allegation and hence he torched his friend’s father’s car as an act of revenge, the prosecutors said.

“He was my friend and one day I stayed with him. When I woke up, I saw him searching in the room for something. I asked him as to what he was searching for. “He told me about BD50 missing and began accusing me of stealing it. I got very angry as I could not stand this allegation. I went to the nearby petrol station and got petrol before burning the car,” the accused told prosecutors.
