Chennai: Car racer Ashwin Sundar, wife charred to death after their BMW catches fire

The couple was travelling in their BMW when the vehicle suddenly caught fire with them stuck inside near Pattinampakkam locality of Chennai.

Professional car racer Ashwin Sundar and his wife Niveditha were charred to death late last night after their BMW rammed a tree and caught fire in Chennai.

The couple was returning from dinner when their vehicle hit the tree near the Pattinampakkam locality in the Tamil Nadu capital. Sundar was driving the car.

With their car trapped between the tree and the wall, they could not get out. Soon, the BMW caught fire and the couple was charred to death.

Niveditha was a doctor in a private hospital in the city.

Locals who spotted the burning car informed the Chennai City police control room. A team from Adyar traffic investigation rushed to the spot immediately after.

Mylapore fire services personnel too swung into action. Sources said that the firemen took nearly half-an-hour to douse the fire.


The team later broke open the car and recovered the bodies. The bodies of the deceased have been sent for post-mortem in Royapettah government hospital.

According to sources, police were unable to identify the charred bodies initially. However, the couple was identified with the help of the licence plate number.

The couple lived in Alapakkam and were returning home after visiting a friend in Raja Annamalaipuram when the incident took place.
