Fishing Harbor Fire

City police have reportedly caught the main person responsible for the fire at the fishing harbor. The incident happened after a group of people, all from the Fishermen’s community in Jalaripet, had a fight. They had been drinking from morning to late at night on the day of the fire. The fire, which occurred last Sunday night, destroyed 48 fishing boats – 30 completely and 18 partially.

Just before the fire at Zero Jetty, the police noticed some people leaving the boats. They initially brought in around 30 people for questioning and checked CCTV footage in and around the fishing harbor. They also looked at the call data of mobile phones in the area.

Finally, they found individuals in the CCTV footage at the spot of the fire and arrested them. An investigating officer, speaking anonymously, said they suspect the accused might have done this in a fit of rage, although it may not be a planned conspiracy.

The government provided compensation of Rs. 7.11 crore to the fire victims on Thursday. Pavan Kalyan, the Janasena chief, gave Rs. 50,000 to each victim on Friday.
