When Rasathi came out, the miscreants snatched away the seven sovereign chain from her and escaped. The Taluk police launched a search operation throughout the day and apprehended M Prakash.

The police continued their search using a drone and found K Ariazhagan (42) of Avarampatti who was clutching on to a palm tree on the banks of the lake.
