Sheelabai, 35, and her seven-year-old son Dinesh were killed when the autorickshaw they were travelling in, overturned due to strong currents on a flooded bridge at Kudambal near Chitaguppa in Bidar district (near the border with Gulbarga district) on Wednesday midnight.

The Hyderabad-Karnataka region has been receiving heavy rain in the past few days.
The deceased hail from Hemlanayak thanda at Gadiningadalli in Chincholi taluk of Gulbarga district. Bheemarao Jadhav, Sheelabai’s husband who was driving the auto, and two other passengers had a narrow escape.

The family was on its way from Chitaguppa to their village when the accident occurred. The bodies of the dead were found amid shrubs and weeds on Thursday morning.

Heavy rain led to huge potholes on the road leading to Raichur from Mansalapura. This resulted in a long queue of more than 500 lorries which were stranded on the bypass road on the outskirts of Raichur city on Wednesday night.

Lorries stranded

One of the wheels of a lorry became stuck in a huge crater in the morning, blocking the road. Once the lorry was cleared, another one got stuck in the crater, compounding the problem.

Cargo vehicles transporting perishable goods like milk, fish and vegetables from the North Karnataka districts and Maharashtra to Hyderabad were among those stranded.

The vehicles, which were supposed to reach Hyderabad in the morning, could not move even by evening.

Lorry drivers said though the bypass road was ready, it was not opened for traffic as the vehicles were yet to be allowed to ply on the railway bridge.

A total of 89 houses were damaged in Surapur taluk of Yadgir district due to heavy showers on Thursday. Yadgir and Shahpur taluks in the district received light showers. The market in Kembhavi was waterlogged.

Several tanks breached in many villages of Yadgir taluk, flooding agriculture fields.
