The mishap occurred after a tanker rammed into her car near Melmaruvathur in Tamil Nadu and the police are investigating if there was any foul play.

South Indian actor-turned politician Khushbu Sundar, who recently quit the Congress party and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party, met with an accident while she was on her way to participate in BJP’s ‘Vel Yatra’ at Cudadalore in Tamil Nadu.

Khushbu and her niece Raja Priya both escaped unhurt. The mishap occurred after a tanker rammed into her car near Melmaruvathur in Tamil Nadu and the police are investigating if there was any foul play.

The driver of tanker has been detained by the police. A senior police officer told The Hindu that they were not suspecting any foul play as of now. Kushboo continued her journey after the accident.

“Request the press to understand that a container rammed into me and not the other way. My car was on the move in the right lane and this container came from nowhere and rammed into me. Police are investigating n questioning the driver to rule out any foul play,” the actor was quoted by the Indian Express as saying.

The Tamil Nadu BJP is holding the yatra despite the state government banning it. The month-long rally, visiting six abodes of Lord Muruga and modelled on the rath yatra, began November 6 from Tiruttani temple, in north of Tamil Nadu, and is scheduled to culminate at Tiruchendur temple, in the southern part of the state on December 6.

The Tamil Nadu government had denied permission for the yatra in view of the Covid-19 situation as well as possible communal tension—as feared in multiple complaints from opposition parties and two PILs filed in HC against the yatra.
