Man sets fire to car with 3 inside in Vijayawada, severely injured

Vijayawada: A man was severely injured in Vijayawada on 17 August after he tried to set a car on fire with three people still inside the vehicle. The man doused the car with petrol and set it on fire near the Novotel Hotel in Vijayawada.

Four men - Krishna Reddy, Gangadhar, Nagamalli, and Venugopal Reddy - were reportedly discussing a land deal in the car when Venugopal suddenly got down, locked the doors, and proceeded to douse the car with petrol which he carried in a bottle. He then set the car on fire.

The three men were injured in the incident while Venugopal suffered around 50 per cent burns. He was admitted to a hospital where his condition is said to be critical.

The police suspect that a land dispute between Krishna and Venugopal may have been the reason behind the murder attempt on the former.
