Madurai, Mar 7 (UNI) The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court today cancelled the anticipatory bail to an accused, who had allegedly attempted to kill two Tamil Nadu Highways Department officials and a police constable last month at Udayarvilai in Kanyakumari district.
Justice K N Pasha cancelled the anticipatory bail to A Senthil Kumar, which was granted to him earlier. Senthil had allegedly tried to kill two Highways officials and a police constable by running a car over them on February 6.

The incident occurred when the accused drove his car and hit the officials--Junior Engineer Sundaram, Assistant Engineer Anthony Xavier, Tahsildar Kanaga Sabapathy and Revenue Officer Abdul Manna, who were overseeing the eviction operation.
Three people, including Sundaram, Anthony and an Head Constable Vincent were injured in the incident.
While Senthil Kumar's father and mother were released on bail, the accused surrendered before the Thackalai court on March 5.
