A man in Telangana's Secunderabad allegedly poured petrol on his brother and set him ablaze due to a property dispute. A CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral on social media, showing the accused setting his sibling in flames in a narrow lane.
The altercation between the siblings reportedly rose over a disagreement regarding access to a pathway near accused Kondikonda Vinod's residence.
The confrontation between the brothers escalated and took a horrific turn when Kondikonda Vinod poured a bottle of petrol on his brother Kondikonda Srinivas and ignited flames using a matchstick.
Nearby residents were able to extinguish the fire. However, Srinivas suffered severe injuries to his head and body, and was rushed to the Gandhi Hospital for treatment.
Boinpally Police have registered a case in the matter and launched an investigation as well.
