BJP's Khushbu Sundar escapes unhurt in car accident
New Delhi : Actor-turned-politician Khushbu Sundar escaped unhurt in a car accident on Wednesday. "Met with an accident near Melmarvathur... a tanker rammed into us. With your blessings and God's grace I am safe," she tweeted, sharing two photos of her badly damaged car.
According to a report by NDTV, her car "brushed on the container carrying washing machines while overtaking".
"We've arrested both drivers for rash driving," a police officer was quoted in the news report.
The accident took place in the town of Melmarvathur in Kancheepuram district, about 97 km from state capital Chennai, when she was on her way to Cuddalore district to participate in a "Vetri Vel Yatra" (Victorious Spear March) which has become a flashpoint between the BJP and state's ruling AIADMK, its ally.
In another tweet, she explained that her car was in the right lane and it was all containers' fault which appeared from nowhere and rammed into her car.
"Vetri Vel Yatra", planned from November 6 to December 6, was conceptualised in honour of Lord Muruga known for his "Vel" or spear.
