Pudukkottai (Tamil Nadu): Ten Lord Ayyappa devotees died when a container lorry rammed the vehicle, near Thirumayam in Pudukkottai on January 6, Sunday.

Five others, who were injured, are being treated at Thirumayam government hospital. At around 2:00 pm, their van was passing Thirumayam in Pudukkottai when a lorry from the opposite direction reportedly crossed into their lane and collided with the van.

Seven people in the van, including the driver, were killed on the spot and 3 people died during medical treatment.
