In separate cases two children lost their lives in the city in 24 hours.

Nayana, aged six and daughter of late Suresh and Jyoti couple was killed on the spot when a sand laden lorry knocked her down and ran over her in Ramabai Nagar on the outskirts on Wednesday. The girl who was studying in first standard in a local school, was returning home from a shop around 7.45 am when the tragedy struck near second cross of the locality. Subsequently,  the lorry driver fled from the spot after parking the lorry near the school.

The incident triggered a protest by the residents who demanded measures to check similar incidents in the future.

It was just two months ago, Nayana had lost her father and was living with her elder sister and mother. 

In another incident that occurred on Tuesday evening, an 11-year-old boy met his tragic end after tripping from the second floor of the house.

Chinmaya son of Purushotham is the deceased. A native of Shimoga district, Chinmaya was staying at his maternal uncle Ganesh’s house in Aravinda Nagar here. 

He was a sixth standard student at Maharshi School. He was climbing stairs to the house in second floor, when he accidentally slipped. The neighbours rushed him to a hospital nearby, but to no avail. Ashokapuram police have registered a case.


A woman married for three years committed suicide allegedly by hanging self at wee hours on Wednesday at Mandakalli. The reason behind her extreme step is alleged dowry harassment by her husband and in-laws.

 In his complaint to south police, Mahadeva Shetty father of Roopa has alleged that he had given Shivakumar dowry at that time. Of late, Shivakumar began harassing her for more money, and this forced Roopa to end her life.
