Family burnt to death in crash after Deepavali delivery to grandmother

BERNAMA – Three individuals, who were burnt to death in a car crash at the Bercham Industrial Area, were delivering Deepavali dishes to their grandmother, living in Taman Perpaduan.

The victims were M Krishna, 20, who drove the Proton Perdana car, his brother M Pavilesh, 16, and their cousin N K Subash Varman, 16.

M Manimaran, 50, said his sons, Krishna and Pavilesh, left their home in Taman Cempaka.

He said they picked up their cousin from Bercham as they wanted to deliver some Deepavali dishes prepared by his wife to their grandmother.

“I managed to speak to my son on the phone and was told they wanted to visit a friend first before returning home. But when I tried to contact him again later on, there was no reply. I tried to find his friend’s house but failed, so I decided to lodge a police report at the Taman Cempaka Police Station as I sensed something amiss,” he said when met at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital Forensic Department.

Manimaran said that about 15 minutes after lodging the report, police officers came to his house to inform him of the accident involving his sons and their cousin.

According to him, his 20-year-old son, the eldest of three siblings, worked at an accessories shop while his second son studied in Form Four at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Raja Chulan.
