Well, Isn’t This Interesting?

Would I lie to you?

Remember the Indian man in Melbourne, Jaspreet Singh, who said he was set alight by racist Australians last month? Hmm, well guess what?  It is being alleged by police the man in question was injured trying to torch his car for an insurance claim and not by some racist Aussie. Oh boy, Mr Singh, who is in Australia on his wife’s student visa, told police last month he was doused in petrol and set alight while parking his car. All hell broke loose in India over the incident. Well, the arson squad told the hearing that from studying the damage to the car, Mr Singh’s clothes and his injuries it was obvious little was consistent with his story. Their conclusion was Mr Singh more than likely received his burns (to 15% of his body) when failing to safely torch his 2003 Ford Futura. Oh and before anyone cries foul, police have security footage of Mr Singh buying a 15 litre plastic container and 1596 litres of petrol on the day before the attack and evidence he was in financial trouble. Of course he is denying the claims.

    Saw him on the news tonight . face still scarred and arms all bandaged. Ah well at least we can safely say it wasn’t a racially motivated attack unless he hates himself..

  2. Sounds like Mr. Singe got burned.

  3. Goodness gracious me! Years ago, such an incident could have resulted in a little local war (Jenkins Ear for those who know history.) If proven, I hope he is billed for the medical care.

    well with the insurance money he could have gotten here they would have returned to India and bought their way into the brahman caste…. they would have been squillionnaires!

    The old burning yourself and blaming it on racist attack trick…
