Delhi cold weather: As biting cold grips Delhi, a man in Pul Prahladpur area of the national capital allegedly set a motorcycle on fire on Thursday (January 25) to keep himself warm, police said. In a 2.5-minute video that surfaces on social media, Kishan Kumar can be seen setting a motorcycle, parked in a lane in GC Block, on fire.

The video also shows Kumar standing in front of the burning two-wheeler for a while.

“At about 3:00 am, Kumar set a sack, kept on a Hero Splendor motorcycle, on fire with the help of a matchstick,” a police officer.

After noticing the motorcycle on fire, its owner and another neighbour came out of their houses and informed the police, the officer said.

“We received the call at 4.37 am and a team was sent to the spot. The blaze was doused with the help of the fire department but by then the motorcycle was completely charred," the officer said.

Police said they identified Kumar with the help of CCTV footage and arrested him from his house. Kumar told police that he set the motorcycle on fire because he was feeling cold. He has been booked under section 435 (Mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) of the IPC, police said.

As per the eyewitnesses, some residents saw him sitting in an auto rickshaw parked near the spot before the incident. Kumar works as a mason and lives with his family in the same block where the incident happened, police said.

The police have medically examined him to know if he was under the influence of alcohol or any narcotics substance. He is being further interrogated, police said.
