Touchy Trio Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #139)

I am experimenting with the different types of mixing with the Trio Sudoku. Earlier I created some puzzles like Non-Consecutive Trio Sudoku and UnTouch Trio Sudoku. This Touchy Trio Sudoku is another type that I liked very much. Regarding today's puzzle, I wanted to create this Sudoku type without giving any hints and I was successful up to some extent. However, to avoid Sudoku being non-unique, I have to give a couple of hints. However, to maintain symmetry, I tried to put corresponding digits on the opposite end which lead to destroying the beautiful logic this Sudoku need to solve. So later I removed these hints to retain the minimum hints which are required to solve this Sudoku. I will mark this Sudoku as the tough one and beginner Sudoku players first should try solving a few Trio Sudoku and Touchy Sudoku puzzles before attempting this Sudoku puzzle.
This Touchy Trio Sudoku, I am posting as my 139th Sudoku in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen.
