Apart from the trio, the car driver sustained grievous injuries and is being treated at GRAI. However, the accused sustained minor injuries and were undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Madurai.

According to police, Batcha alias Madasamy (30), Sannasi (35) and Natarajan (35), all native of Mugavur near Srivilliputhur, were travelling in a rented car driven by Vasudevan (54) on Monday, after signing the records at Thadikombu police station.
