'Santrupti' filled with gloom

 ‘Santrupti’ No 266, on Seventh main in Alanahalli now wears a deserted look.
This is the house where Jnanaprakash was living with his family of five including his wife and two children, elder brother and parents.

On Sunday, while the corpse of brothers were laid on cots in front of the house, the relatives and neighbours were in tears for the tragedy that filled ‘Santrupti’ with gloom.  B G Shivappa, father of the deceased had shifted to Mysore decades ago from his native Halli Mysore in Holenarsipura in Hassan district. A staunch supporter of former chief minister Ramakrishna Hegde, Shivappa dabbled in politics for sometime. A real estate agent, his’
was the happy family till the mishap claimed lives of his sons.

Jnanaprakash was a happy man with wife and two children, while Anand had divorced his wife.  Just a day before the incident, Jnanaprakash had brought his ailing wife Anasuya from hospital.

A friend of Jnanaprakash who had come to pay her last respects told Deccan Herald, ‘Anasuya was down with many health disorders including blood loss. She was given blood on the eve of the mishap too, on Friday’.

Lokesh was running a tea stall till he changed his profession to autorickshaw driver a year-and-half ago. A fellow auto driver said, he had gone to the shop for income certificate.
His two sons are studying in a school nearby, and the certificate is a must to avail benefits like scholarship and other facilities. He leaves behind wife Sheela, two children and aged parents.
