The police were able to catch hold of this Doctor Ameet Gaikwad (37) who is originally from Kalaburgi and sources say he has burnt about 10 cars in Kalaburgi as well.
Last night a security guard posted at Vivanta apartment,Visvesvaraya Nagar saw a suspicious man who had parked his car and was moving around another parked on the street. The security guard informed the police and when the police caught him and searched his car KA 22 N 6244, they were astonished to see petrol cans, cloth, camphor, 5 mobiles, lighter, scissors, 2 knives, hammer, engine oil, spirit, diesel can and cloth balls.
The police say that all the 10 cars burnt have been burnt by this person alone and is mentally unstable as he was relieved from his job and sent on mandatory leave by the college for his unusual behavior.
The police said that he used to place cotton balls or cloth pieces dipped in fuel on the bonnet or elsewhere place a Camphor piece on it and light it.
However sources say that the Doctor hasn’t spoken as to why he did this? Even after repeated questioning and why you have camphor packets in the car he replied he can show the bills.
The police who assume Dr Ameet Gaikwad to be the sole accused as of now will throughly interrogate him further and try to divulge the exact reason behind this act.
