Dubai: Expat Driver Sets 13 Vehicles On Fire In Revenge

A man set 13 cars on fire after launching an arson attack on a fellow bus driver he claimed was costing him business by lowering his fares. The 42-year-old Pakistani doused his rival’s bus in petrol before using a lit cigarette to set it ablaze, Dubai Criminal Court heard.

A 24-year-old Pakistani minibus driver was said to have dropped off staff who work at Dubai Outlet Mall and had parked his minibus in the outer parking. He received a phone call from his friend at 2 am, according to records, and was told his vehicle was on fire.

He rushed out to the parking to check what had happened before he was notified by police interrogators and firefighters that his vehicle had been deliberately set on fire.
