Car rams parked bus, trader killed

Bangalore: Feb 11, 2013 DHNS

A businessman was killed after he crashed his car into a parked bus on Race Course Road, Saturday night.

According to police, the accident occurred when Roham Ram, 23, an iron scrap dealer, was returning home from his shop in KR Market. Sources said Ram was inebriated and overspeeding.

According to eyewitnesses, as he neared the bus parked in front of Swiss Complex, Ram accelerated the vehicle instead of applying brakes, and rammed the bus from the rear end. Traffic police suspect that a heavily drunk Ram might have pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. The car was in such a speed that most part of it went under the bus.


High Grounds traffic police extricated the body from the wreckage. Ram was killed on the spot. The body was handed over to the family on Sunday after an autopsy at the Bowring Hospital.

Decomposed body found

The half-charred body of a middle-aged man was found in an unused water sump in Banjara Layout, near Kalkere, Sunday afternoon.

The identity of the man is yet to be established, police said. The body was discovered by residents of the area who informed Ramamurthy Nagar Police. The body was in advanced state of decomposition and investigating police officers estimate that the man may have died three or four days ago.

The half-naked body was found wrapped in an woollen blanket. After an examination of the crime scene, police suspect that the man was murdered elsewhere and in a bid to dispose off the body, the killers may have attempted to burn it. When they were unsuccessful, they wrapped it in the blanket and left it in the sump, police speculated.  Ramamurthy Nagar Police have registered a case and are investigating. The body has been shifted to Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College where  autopsy will be done Monday.

Constable robbed

Four unidentified men assaulted and robbed a constable of his valuables in the City late Saturday night.

M A Ramachandra, the police constable attached to the Lokayukta police, was returning to his office after dropping a friend at the BMTC bus stop on Seshadri Road, when he was attacked. Four unidentified men rounded on him, attacked him with a knife and robbed him of his mobile phone, Rs 170 in cash, his bus pass and driving licence. Ramachandra has sustained minor injuries to his left ear, neck, both arms and chest. Vidhana Soudha police have registered a case.
