Thrissur: In an unfortunate incident, two people were killed after a bus carrying 51 Velankanni pilgrims from Thrissur met with an accident on Sunday in Tamil Nadu. The deceased have been identified as Nellikkunnu native Lily (63) and Rayan (9).

The accident took place at Mannargudi in Tamil Nadu around 4.30 am. The group of pilgrims embarked on the pilgrimage around 7 pm on Saturday from Ollur in Thrissur.

As per reports, the bus lost control while turning a bend, crashed into a barricade, overturned and fell into a depth. Around 40 passengers have reportedly sustained injuries. They have been rushed to a hospital in Mannargudi, near Thanjavur.

As the passengers were asleep during the accident, the death toll is likely to go up further.
