Trichy: On Sunday afternoon (August 18), eight people were killed after a minivan carrying 22 members plunged into a 30-foot well in Tamil Nadu.
The minivan had been travelling towards Thirumanoor for a temple festival. According to 46-year-old Saraswathi, who survived the accident, the vehicle was quite full.
“We have been catching several offenders but we have not been able to monitor the practice in rural parts. Hereafter, we are going to enforce the rules more strictly and all minivans carrying people will be detained immediately,” Trichy superintendent of police (SP) Ziaul Haque said.
