BSY, Ramdas ignored man killed by tractor: Villagers
MYSURU: A civil engineer riding a bike was killed after a tractor knocked him down on the outskirts of the city on Monday. But villagers protested alleging that state BJP presdient B S Yeddyurappa and former medical education minister S A Ramdas, who were on their way to Chamarajanagar at the same time, did not help the accident victim.
Police said civil engineer M K Jayanth, 24, a resident of Deen Dayal Nagar near Koppaluru in Mysuru taluk, was riding his bike near Gundurao Nagar bus stand on Mysuru-Nanjangud Road on Monday morning.
Jayanth was riding towards ColumbiaAsia Hospital where he was supervising road work. While riding on the highway, a tractor which took a sudden turn at the junction hit his bike and unseated him. While Jayanth was lying on the road in a pool of blood, the tractor driver escaped leaving the vehicle behind.
People who were on the spot alleged that Yeddyurappa and Ramdas took that road towards Chamarajanagar at the same time, but didn’t stop their vehicle to offer help to the accident victim.
