Woman, child killed as wall collapses on them

 A woman and her two-year-old son were killed after a wall came crashing down on them at an under construction building in Hennur police limits on Friday.

The victims were identified as Parvati, 20, and Kumar Yellappa. Parvati’s husband Maunesh, 25, also sustained injuries, police said.

Maunesh and Parvati hail from Gulbarga and had come to the City in search of job. 
They were employed as construction workers Agara Horamavu and were staying at a makeshift shed near the construction site.

A large number of cement bags were stacked adjacent to the wall at the construction site. The wall weakened due to pressure by the bags and came crashing down around 3.30 pm.

Parvati was busy mixing cement while Yellappa was playing nearby. Both sustained grievous injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital where they were declared brought dead. The bodies were shifted to the Ambedkar Medical College and Hospital for the post-mortem. The owner of the property and site supervisor ran away after the incident. A case has been registered.

Constable injured

A police constable, deputed to check vehicles carrying black money for poll purposes, was injured when a two-wheeler rider rammed his vehicle against him on Inner Ring Road near Rajajinagar on Thursday night.

Dodda Siddaiah, 35, attached to Rajagopalanagar police station, along with his colleague Ramesh, stopped the youth who was riding the two-wheeler recklessly and asked him to produce the vehicle documents. The suspect, however, started the bike and rammed against Dodda Siddaiah before speeding away.

The police are analysing the CCTV footage to ascertain the identity of the rider.

Five men – Gangadharaiah, Shivalingaiah, Chandrashekhar, Krishna and Koti Chandrashekhar – were arrested by the Byatarayanapura police when they allegedly tried to transport an antique idol near Kengeri Satellite Bus Stand.
