Tripura student dead, friend critical after bike hits electricity pole

A 25-year-old engineering student was killed and his friend grievously injured when their motorcycle crashed into an electricity pole off Museum Road, central Bengaluru, in the early hours of Saturday.

Prill and Ricky, both from Tripura, were riding home after eating out. As they reached Museum Road around 1.30 am, Prill lost control of the motorcycle and crashed it into an electricity pole.

Both of them sustained severe head injuries and were taken to hospital by the Cubbon Park traffic police. While Prill died, Ricky remains in a critical condition. Neither rider was wearing helmet.

Police said they were awaiting reports to ascertain if Prill was drunk while riding the two-wheeler. The youths were studying at a private engineering college near Hesaraghatta.
