On Monday evening, a man arrived in a bus and hired Jaya’s auto from the stand at Pallathamkulangara in Kuzhuppilly to go to a nearby hospital. The man claimed he was visiting a relative undergoing treatment there. However, upon reaching the hospital, the man claimed the patient had been shifted to the Medical College Hopsital at Kalamassery and requested Jaya to take him there. Meanwhile, two other men also boarded the auto from the Kuzhuppilly hospital.

During the journey to Kalamassery, the passengers requested Jaya to stop the auto at several places. The men continued to travel in Jaya’s auto while returning from the Kalamassery hospital as well. Upon reaching Chathangad, the passengers instructed Jaya to head to the beach, claiming they had parked their bike there.
