Three youths allegedly set a vending machine on fire at a petrol station after they were refused provide fuel in Rawli village of Ghaziabad.

The blaze was swiftly brought under control by the petrol station staff, averting a disaster. No one was injured in the incident.

According to the police, the youths -- identified as Rahul, Inderjeet and Ankit -- were agitated after the staff of the ‘Kisan’ petrol outlet owned by Dushyant Tyagi refused to give them fuel. In a fit of rage, the three allegedly set a vending machine alight.

Police reached the spot and arrested Rahul and Inderjeet. The third accused, Ankit, is absconding.

The incident was captured on CCTV surveillance footage.
