Mangaluru: In a fire that broke out at Senarabettu in Amblamogaru in Konaje police limits, a car and a bike were found charred late Monday night.
As they have been regularly doing, Hyder and his brother Abdul Jabbar, had parked their vehicles in fron of the house overnight. When they heard the sound of flames and burning, they came out and tried to douse the fire.
But by then, the bike was already charred and the car too was damaged almost completely.
There was no possible reason for fire. It is suspected that a petrol thieves’ gang has been operating in the area. The fire may have broken out while the miscreants were attempting to drain the fuel tanks.
The Konaje police have registered a case.
