The accident occurred on Mysore Road early in the morning. Afroz sustained severe head injuries and died on the spot.


Siddiqui, who was riding the bike, sustained minor injuries and is being treated at a private hospital. The driver abandoned the lorry and fled the place.


In another accident, 21-year-old Ganesh from Mysore, was killed at Mylasandra Gate near Kengeri on Tuesday night. He was returning home after meeting his friends at Kamakhya Layout when the accident occurred.

Ganesh was riding a bike and applied brakes suddenly as the car in front of him slowed down on approaching a road hump.


Ganesh lost control over the vehicle and fell on his right. A speeding car from behind ran over him, killing him on the spot.


The car driver fled the scene after the accident.
