Five women drowned and 12 others were injured when a vehicle in which they were travelling lost control and plunged into a canal near Kadhal town in the district, police said today.

The incident took place last evening when the victims were returning in a 'jugaad' (locally-made motor vehicle) after attending a funeral ceremony.

While the bodies of three victims were fished out this morning, rescue workers are trying to retrieve two other bodies, said officials. The victims-- Kailashu, Vimala, Rameshu, Sumitra and Kaushal-- were all residents of Titerwara village in the district, they said.
