According to the sources, eighteen year old K. Parasuraman (son of Krishnamurthy), a resident of nearby Poondiankuppam village, sustained major injuries when he fell off from a temporary roof erected to carry on the the electrical jobs inside the construction site. Parsuraman was a sub contract worker who has been working for contractor Murali who in turn has been awarded the contract of erecting electrical lines in the site by Power Tech.
