Two killed in an accident on Tank Bund
Two teenagers died and another suffered severe injuries, after they fell off from the motorcycle they were travelling on the Upper Tank Bund on Saturday.
The accident occurred at 1 am on Saturday. The victims were identified as intermediate students K. Vijay, 18, and Sai Manoj. Raisahab Yadav, 17, diploma student of a government college, survived. They were residents of MN Reddy Nagar of Chintal.
The students who were triple riding on a two-wheeler crashed as the rider tried to avoid hitting a pedestrian crossing the road. The mishap occurred near Kandukuri Veereshalingam statue.
Police is checking whether they possessed a driving licence. “Vijay’s father said his son took out the bike without their notice on Saturday,” Srinivas said.
The bodies of Vijay and Manoj were shifted to Gandhi hospital for postmortem and a case was booked under Section 304A (death by neglig-ence). Though several non-fatal accidents have occurred on Tank Bund, this is the first fatal mishap on Tank Bund after the ‘Love Hyd’ icon was shifted out, said Gandh-inagar sub-inspector M. Prasad. “The accident was the result of negligence of the students. CCTV camera images showed that they were riding at high speed.”
