Lorry mows down three in sleep

Basavaraju of Bijapur was the driver employed with a private firm, while Veeresh and Veeresh worked as cleaners.

The three men were sleeping in the company premises on Hulimangala Road. The driver had parked the lorry and the trio who had slept in the room earlier, unable to bear the heat, decided to sleep outside in the vacant parking space.

Early morning tragedy

At about four in the morning, another lorry from the same company, was on its way to halt at Hulimangala Road.

Unaware that three men were sleeping in the vacant parking space, the driver while reversing inadvertently ran them over, killing them on the spot.  The Anekal police arrested the driver and seized the lorry.
