In another tweet, she said, "Request the press to understand that a container rammed into me and not the other way. My car was on the move in the right lane and this container came from nowhere and rammed into me. Police are investigating n questioning the driver to rule out any foul play." She further thanked everyone for their good wishes. "Thank you so much for all the inquiries n good wishes. I feel indebted. I am safe n continuing my journey towards Cuddalore. Nothing has stopped me before this, nothing will stop me now either. Zindagi har kadam ek nayi Jung hai. Jeet jaayenge hum tu agar sang hai," Khushbu tweeted. 

On the other hand, a police officer investigating the case told a leading publication that Khushbu's car brushed on the container carrying washing machines while overtaking'. The officer said, "We've arrested both drivers for rash driving." 

Vetri Vel Yatra, which was planned from November 6 to December 6, was conceptualised in honour of Lord Muruga known for his Vel or spear.
