Man dies in car-bike collision

Two persons were killed under KR Puram and Madiwala traffic police limits in separate road accidents.

In the first incident, a 35-year-old man died after a car rammed into his bike near Battarahalli junction in KR Puram in the early hours of Friday.

The police have identified the deceased as Ramji, a resident of Hoodi who was working as a security supervisor in a private company.

Around 12.30 am, he was on his way home and while trying to cross the road near Battarahalli junction, a speeding car rammed into him.

The two-wheeler was dragged for about 30 metres along with the car. The leakage of petrol from the bike’s fuel tank resulted in the two-wheeler catching fire, said the police.

They informed the police, who rushed to the spot along with the Fire and Emergency personnel. The fire was doused and the police seized the car whose driver had fled the spot by abandoning it, added the police.
