2 women, 3 youths burn bizman alive

New Delhi, Nov 16, 2012, DHNS :

They had a dispute over setting up shop

Five people, including two women, beat up and burnt alive a 50-year-old businessman inside his shop in west Delhi’s Khyala on Friday, over a dispute on setting up a temporary stall outside shop.

Vijay Arora, who runs a spare parts business in  market at T Block in Khyala area came to his shop at around 7: 45 am. Police received a call at around 8:30 am at police control regarding a fire inside an auto parts shop.

“A along with fire tenders, we rushed to the spot and found that smoke was emitting from inside the shop,” a senior police officer said.

“The fire tenders doused the flames after which they discovered a charred body of a man,” added the officer.

A case of murder has been registered at the Khyala police station and the body has been sent for a post-mortem.

Police said the victim’s son made the call when he reached the shop and saw fumes coming out of the shop.

Scuffle

During investigation, it was found that two women ran a  stall of earthen utensils outside Arora's shop. But for the last past few months, Arora had stopped them from putting up the stall because of which they had many arguments.

On Diwali, November 13, they had a scuffle but the argument was later settled by the local shopkeepers.

Arora owned three shops in the same lane but the owners of a few nearby shops had encroached upon the common passage and had allowed vendors to set up temporary stalls.

“Today, all five accused came to Arora’s shop and indulged in a heated argument,” said the officer.

The argument turned ugly and they first bashed up Arora and then pushed him
inside the shop.

“They then allegedly poured kerosene on him and set him and the shop on fire and closed the shutter from outside, and fled from the scene,” said the officer.

A police crime team and a forensic team visited the spot to collect evidence.

Meanwhile, hunt is on for the five accused, who have been identified as Chandrakanta and Krishna, both women in fifties, and three youths Puran, Chaman and Raj.

“Various teams have been sent to possible hideouts. We are investigating into the matter and looking for eyewitnesses. So far no one has come forward,” said the officer.

Arora is survived by his wife and three children.
