To all arivujeevis who are discussing if subhasree was wearing a helmet at the time of the incident, wear a helmet, and let someone throw a heavy object on you while you are driving, go under a lorry and apdiye poidu. Because you will also die. #WhoKilledShubashree— Shanjana Vakeeswaran (@shanjvakee) September 12, 2019

In 2017, Ragupathy Kandasamy, a 30-year-old software engineer back home in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore from the US to meet a prospective bride, died when his motorcycle crashed into a temporary wooden hoarding set up on a road by the ruling AIADMK for its MGR centenary celebrations. As Mr Ragupathy hit the structure and fell from his bike, a truck ran him over.
