Youth inside abandoned car causes a flutter

By Our Special Correspondent

VILLUPURAM, MARCH 9. K.Marimuthu (24) of Rajapalayam, who was said to have quit the Army, created a flutter today, giving tense moments to officials and police.

The Police Control Room here received a call from Ezhilarasan (30), an employee of the Tamil Nadu Women's Development Corporation, in the morning that a body was lying for the past two days in an abandoned car parked on the premises of the Corporation office.

A police team rushed to the spot and opened its doors to find the man lying motionless. When one of the policeman poked his lathi to see whether he was alive or not, to the shock of those assembled there, the man responded with a groan.

Later, he was taken out of the car (which has been in disuse for the past two years). On enquiry, he revealed his identity. As he had given up the Army post at Rajasthan, he did not want to go back to his native place, and hence, was wandering aimlessly.

Since he was starving for the past few days, he could not move around, and therefore, he found asylum in the car.

The security personnel, who grew sympathetic to him, got him admitted to hospital where he was administered drips. Late in the evening, Marimuthu was discharged from the hospital.
