Visakhapatnam: A man set a wine shop on fire after the staff refused to serve him alcohol after closing time in Visakhapatnam. The accused, Gummadi Madhavarao alias Madhu, was arrested and sent to judicial remand.

“Madhavarao reached the wine shop on Saturday at 9.30 pm. Due to the closing time, the shop staff refused to serve him alcohol. He threatened the staff that he would burn the whole shop, and the next day he did what he said," said Pothinamallayya Palem Inspector Rama Krishna.
