Bengaluru: Businessman’s high-end SUV set on fire in apartment parking | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Miscreants set a Range Rover sports utility vehicle (SUV), parked inside an apartment complex in Sadashivanagar, on fire in the wee hours of October 20.
SUV owner Srinivasa Naidu TK, a businessman and resident of Saptagiri apartment, has filed a police complaint. Naidu said CCTV footage from the apartment revealed that 5-6 masked men set the vehicle ablaze around 12.40am. Earlier in the night (around 10pm), six men had knocked on his door saying they were from a courier agency and suspecting foul play, Naidu had informed Sadashivanagar police.
“Which courier firm agents will visit at 10pm? I saw a few men standing a little away from my door and immediately called police. Hearing my conversation with the cops, they fled. Police personnel in a Hoysala vehicle visited me and searched the vicinity of my house for over one hour, but in vain,” Naidu said
Around 12.40am, the businessman heard a loud noise of a tyre explosion. “I stepped out of my flat and ran towards the basement. My Range Rover was on fire. Before we could do anything, the entire vehicle was gutted,” Naidu said, adding: “It was my dream car. I had purchased it from another person in February this year.”
CCTV footage showed around six masked men entering the apartment complex and setting the SUV on fire. Asked whether he suspected anyone, Naidu said: “I am still in shock and cannot say anything. I am hopeful of a speedy investigation.”
An investigating officer said: “It seems like a rivalry-related issue. We have some clues about the suspects.”
