Lakshumanan Nishanthan, 23, a businessman, was travelling towards Nallur in his Hiace van when he was stopped at the checkpoint at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Local witnesses saw the van being driven by another unidentified driver without Nishanthan at about 11:30 a.m., the relatives said in the complaint.
