Goa : A couple in Canacona, operating a food stall from Madditolop along NH 66, lost their only source of income after some miscreants set their kiosk ablaze on Saturday. This is the second time the couple, Sneha and Shekhar Uscoikar, have faced their kiosk being gutted due to arson by unidentified accused.This time, however, the couple said they are worse hit as the family was already reeling under losses due to the pandemic. “First the loss of business due to the pandemic and now this,” Sneha said.
At the time the Uscoikars reported the fire, Canacona fire station officials were already attending to another incident at Patnem Colomb. Therefore, a fire tender had to be called from Margao, leading to further delay in dousing the fire.Canacona fire station officer Ravindranath Pednekar said the loss is estimated at Rs 60,000.A case has been registered with Canacona police and is under investigation.
