Sitting Villupuram MP S Rajendran was killed in an accident that took place early Saturday morning.
The MP was on his way back home in Vanur from a dinner hosted by PMK's Ramadoss at Thailapuram. The accident took place around 6 am near Tindivanam in Villupuram district, when the car he was travelling hit the centre median of the road. He was 62.
The MP’s driver Anbuselvam, while coming out of the Circuit House, lost control of the vehicle and rammed it into a median.
S Rajendran had won the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 from Villupuram constituency, defeating DMK's Dr. Muthian on a margin of almost 2 lakh votes. In February 2017, Rajendran was one of the five AIADMK MPs to extend support to the O Panneerselvam camp.
