A lathe workshop owner and two of his workers sustained grievous injuries after they were attacked by three unidentified gang members here on Wednesday.

At 6 a.m., when Sivakumar was working at his lathe, three masked men came there and started attacking him with billhooks. When two workers, Baskar and Sarathi attempted to stop the gang, they, too, were attacked. Neighbours rushed to the spot and raised alarm after which the three escaped. The three were admitted to the Government Mohan Kumaramangalam Medical College and Hospital and were undergoing treatment. Pallapatti police are inquiring.
