Mysore/Mysuru: Three students were seriously injured after a car driven by a head constable of a Police Station in Bengaluru, allegedly hit them when they were returning from college in Malavalli of Mandya district last evening. The head constable was alone in the car and he fled the spot before a crowd gathered.

While two of the injured are critical, one is said to be extremely critical. All have been admitted at hospitals in Mysuru. Though Mandya Police refused to confirm that the car was driven by a Policeman, Department sources told Star of Mysore that the head constable is attached to Upparpet Police Station. The Malavalli Police have registered a case and have seized the car while the cop has been released on bail.

The 19-year-old students, Sharath, Shashank and Sudarshan, first B.Com students of Shanthi College of Malavalli, are the injured. Among them, Sharath is said to be very critical and is on ventilator support at Apollo BGS Hospitals in Mysuru.

The incident occurred on the Mysuru Road near a poultry farm. While Sharath hailed from Ragibommanahalli village, Shashank hails from Malavalli town and Sudarshan is from Maganahalli village. The car which hit them (KA-01-MR-9616) was proceeding towards Bengaluru and as per eye-witnesses, the Police constable was driving at great speed.

The impact of the accident was such that the three students, who were walking by the side of the road, were thrown off up to five feet. The footage of the accident has been captured by a CCTV camera placed at a shop.

    Wonder how a head constable drives a high ended car? Who is the owner of the car? Must be a SI of upperpet police station. What is ACB doing? they should investigate this case too.

  3. Shantala says:

    This head constable drove car? Must have been borrowed from one off his criminal friends he had. After crashing to these hapless students, this head constable ran away. He will seek refuge to a minster or a powerful MLA, who will say, he was not at fault.
    He had caused serious injuries . If he is hiding , the police force should hunt him down and he should face the toughest charge possible..
    Not going to happen in this PM Modi’s corrupt India. Not saying Congress is any better, as all of them are criminals too..
