A man in the Indian state of Kerala razed down his neighbour’s grocery shop using an earth mover because he was disgruntled with his neighbour as he stalled his wedding plans.
Tired of his complaints not being taken note of by the authorities, 30-year-old Albin Mathew decided to take the matters in his own hands.
The events were played out just like a recent Malayalam blockbuster Ayyappanum Koshiyum starring Prithviraj and Biju Menon. The movie shows the protagonist razing down a half-done yet occupied home of his rival in the dead of the night, something similar that Mathew did to his neighbour Soji.
According to the people living around, despite the two of them being neighbours, they have not been on good terms. They were the ones who pointed out the chances of his wrath over the said allegation. However, Soji rubbished the allegation.
Albin shared a video on social media where he claimed that Soji’s shop was used for ‘unlawful activities’. “The shop is used for illegal gambling and liquor trade, we the youngsters of this area are upset with this,” he says in the video.
In the video, Albin also says that Soji had hindered many marriage proposals that came for him.
Since the police nor the civic authorities actioned on the complaints Albin decided to action himself.
The police arrested Albin for his act. He has been charged under relevant sections of the law for illegally demolishing the shop.
