Coimbatore, Dec 6 : Three Tamil Nadu government buses were impounded today as per a Court order for not paying the compensation for the death a woman pillion rider some four years ago near Annur.

According to police, one Manikandan from Annur on the outskirts had filed a petition seeking solatium for his wife’s death due to mishap involving a government bus near Kovilpalayam, when they were going on a two-wheeler
in 2015.

The 3rd Additional District Court had ordered the Transport Corporation to pay Rs.72. 40 lakh, with 7.5 per cent interest to the bereaved family in 2018. Since there was a delay in payment, Manikandan again approached the
