Those killed in the accident included DMK MLA from Hosur Y Prakash’s son Karuna Sagar and daughter-in-law Bindu, the politician confirmed.
“Initial probe revealed that it’s an act of rash/negligent driving with high speed. They were not wearing seat belts therefore airbags didn’t open. We’re conducting post-mortem and verifying vehicle details,” said Dr BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Bengaluru Joint Commissioner (Traffic).
