Sumit Thakur, his brother Amit Thakur and their accomplices torched Prof. Maske’s car

DSC_0018Nagpur: Gittikhadan police have booked the Vice President of BJP Youth Wing Sumit Thakur, his brother Amit Thakur and their other accomplices on the charges of arson and violence. Sumit Thakur and other accused torched the car of a 50-year old man and put him at loss of Rs 1.50 lakh. The violent act was outcome of old enmity.

According to police, in a well-planned conspiracy, the accused Sumit Thakur, Amit Thakur, both residents of Prerna Nagar, and their accomplices stormed the place of Professor Malhar Chindhuji Maske (50), resident of Plot No. 49, Prerna Nagar, between 10 pm of Wednesday and 2 am of Thursday and set Maske’s car (MH-31/CM 6779) ablaze. The car was almost reduced to mangle of steel in the fire. Maske reportedly suffered loss of Rs 1.50 lakh.

Gittikhadan PSI Madankar, acting on a complaint filed by Maske, booked the accused Sumit Thakur, his brother Amit Thakur and their other accomplices under Sections 435, 120(B), 34 of IPC and mounted a search to nab them.

BJP removes Sumit Thakur from party

It is reliably gathered that since Sumit Thakur has cases of serious nature registered against him like murder, kidnapping etc, this incident turned out to be the last straw and the city BJP Party leaders decided to remove him from the post of Vice-President of Youth Wing and from primary membership.

Sources added that his act of arson was a result of previous enmity that has been brewing from the time Sumit Thakur was a student leader and accusing Professor Malhar Chindhuji Maske of irregularities and in-turn the Professor accusing him of various crime and misbehavior resulting in police action on previous occasions.

City Congress President Vikas Thakre on learning the incident, reached the spot early in the morning and assured of stern action against the culprits.
