A week after a 24-year-old Sampathkumar was asphyxiated to death in Tiruninravur where he had gone to seek blessings of his spiritual guru on his birthday, his friend, who also inhaled poisonous gases and was under treatment, succumbed on Friday night. He was identified as Narendran from Perathur village in Tiruvallur district.

The incident happened when they entered the underground septic tank to clear a block at their guru’s residence in Tiruninravur. The Police said both Sampathkumar and Narendran were Saibaba devotees and often visited a temple-cum-house managed by a priest Santhanam alias Guruji at Om Shakthi Nagar. During their recent visit, they found that the drains in the Guru’s residence often got blocked and volunteered to check.
