THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: “Sriram demanded to drive the car along when the vehicle reached in front of Cafe Coffee Day at Kowdiar. From there, he drove the car at a high speed. Though I requested him to slow down he refused,” Wafa Feroze, the owner of the Volkswagen Vento car that was involved in the accident, told the police.  

According to Wafa, who was brought to Cantonment police station to record her statement, Sriram told her to bring the car to an apartment in Kowdiar.
