Two students of an engineering college in Bengaluru were killed after their motorbike rammed a road divider near K Shettahalli in the taluk on Sunday.

The deceased have been identified as Ayush Shetty (19) and Tanmayasheel (19), students of Don Bosco Engineering College, Kumbalgodu, Bengaluru, police said.

According to police, four students of the college were on their way to Mysuru on two motorbikes for picnic when the accident occurred near Srirangapatna. Shetty, a resident of Vijayanagar in Bengaluru, who was riding pillion was killed on the spot while Tanmayasheel who hailed from Guwahati, Assam, died on the way to a hospital.

The accident triggered snap protest with local people alleging that the curve near K Shettahalli had become accident zone. They said that in the past one-and-half months more than eight people had lost their lives in accidents at this spot. The stir disrupted movement of vehicles on the busy Bengaluru-Mysuru road.
