Selvanayaki (19) and her younger sister Meghalaya (13) are the daughters of Periyasamy and Sellammal couple residing in Jambothi village, Ginger Block of Villupuram district. Manivannan (21), of Hindu Vanniayar caste (most backward caste) fell in love three months ago while working in a Saravana store canteen. The two have returned to their hometown on 22.09.2020. On 05.10.2020 at around 08.00 am, Selvanayaki was shocked when a woman named Vanitha from Melsevalampadi village of Melmalayanur Block called and told her that Manivannan was in love with her.
But Selvanayaki immediately rushed to Manivannan’s house and she was stopped by Mannivannan. But she did not listen and came in a two-wheeler and knocked her down.
