Mishap: 15 injured

As many as 15 senior citizens were injured in a freak accident when the tempo in which they were travelling landed in an open drain near Kodigenahalli Gate in Hebbal on Saturday morning.

Police said that more than 20 people were travelling towards Yelahanka in an open tempo. When the vehicle approached the Kodigenahalli signal, the driver learnt that the brakes were not functioning. He steered the tempo into a service road in order to avert an accident; the vehicle landed in an open drain. All the injured were shifted to various hospitals.

Following investigation, it came to light that the senior citizens were residents of Byrasandra slum, Thilak Nagar, and they were promised money under the old age scheme ( Rs 400 per month), and were being taken to the Bangalore North Tahsildar's office in Yelahanka. However, the other car which was following the tempo did not turn up at the hospital.

Police said that it was an attempt to woo the voters in the upcoming corporation elections. They were trying to find out which candidate had hired the tempo.
