On Friday (Dec 9), Surenthiran Sugumaran was sentenced to six months jail after pleading guilty to one count of mischief by fire for starting a fire at the home of his ex-girlfriend’s new beau on the day of their wedding.
He had also locked the groom’s gate with a bicycle lock and poured petrol onto a shoe rack outside the flat before setting it alight.
A second charge of wrongful confinement was taken into consideration for his sentencing.
According to CNA, the man had discovered that his ex-girlfriend was getting married and he took action on the day of the wedding.
He brought a bottle of petrol and locked the groom’s home and a lock to the groom’s home and set fire and also locked the gate of the HDB unit.
The incident took place before the wedding, it is speculated that he wanted to delay or force the wedding to not take place on that very day.
He planned to escape the detection of authorities by wearing clothing that would cover his face and even took the lift to the 12th floor before using the staircase to access the grom’s level which was on level 13.
However, it is clear that his efforts were in vain and not only he did not stop the couple from getting married he got caught and lands himself in jail.
At least he won’t need to see his ex-girlfriends wedding photos on Instagram.
