Nagpur, May 2 (PTI) Two men tried to set a petrol pump on fire here in Maharashtra following a quarrel over wearing face masks, an official said on Sunday.

Nobody was injured in the incident which occurred on Saturday night.

A police official said the accused Omkar Tale (44) and Suraj Dahake (23) came to the petrol pump on a motorcycle without wearing face masks on Saturday evening.

Dahake also spitted near the petrol filling machine, leading to a quarrel, following which the duo refused to pay the petrol bill.

While leaving, they threw money on the face of employees.

Soon after, the duo returned to the spot and hurled a fire bottle containing petrol on the filling station, the official said.

However, employees doused the flames using a fire extinguisher.

The duo was overpowered by employees of the petrol pump and handed over to the police.
