Within a week, two key suspects had met with accidents. C Kanagaraj, Jayalalithaa's former driver, was hit by a car while on the Salem-Ulundurpet National Highway, while KV Sayan's car was hit by a truck between Palakkad and Thrissur.

Kanagaraj succumbed to his injuries. Syam lost his wife and child.
