The accused, identified as Surendra, is a resident of Azad Nagar and runs a fabrication business. The incident took place after an argument broke out between Surendra and his son Arpit, who was managing the business. Arpit failed to give details of ₹ 1.5 crores when the father asked him for account details.

A CCTV footage of the incident shows the son coming out of the house, drenched in some liquid. Police later confirmed the liquid to be a paint thinner (a spirit-based solvent). The footage available online shows Surendra rushing out of the building after Arpit and setting him on fire moments later. Advertisement
