The duo were returning in an Ola cab. At 200 Feet Road, the car had a breakdown and the driver, identified as Muthuvel from Kolathur, allegedly asked Suman to open the bonnet of the vehicle to check the engine. He also asked Suman to recheck the wires while he sat in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. While Suman finished checking the engine and walked to enter the car, Muthuvel started the vehicle and drove away with Shanthi in the passenger seat, leaving behind Suman.
