Ravi, who was in a soup after his car rammed into two cars parked by the roadside near Urkenahalli Gate on NH-75 in Kunigal taluk in the wee hours of Feb.19, in which two youths were killed, held conciliatory talks with the family members of the accident victims at Mandya on Wednesday.

The talks were held at the official residence of Mandya Additional SP A.R. Balaramegowda.

The ASP, also a relative of the deceased youths — Shashikumar and Sunil Gowda of Kanakapura taluk — had organised the meeting between the MLA and the family members of the accident victims.

During the meeting, the family members of the two deceased youths expressed anger against the MLA for not attending to the victims soon after the mishap.
