Helmetless rider trying to escape from Police injured

May 5, 2018

Mysuru:  A helmetless bike rider, who tried to escape from the Police, hit the barricade near Paduvarahalli signal and sustained serious injuries. The students and the public who gathered at the accident spot held the Police responsible and blocked the road for some time.

The youth, who was injured is Akshay Kumar, a student of Vidya Vikas College. Kumar came on the bike last evening from Manasagangothri side and took a left turn near the Hunsur Road Signal. On seeing the Police in checking drive, he tried to escape from them by zipping but lost control of his bike and hit the barricade and fell down. As he was seriously injured,  he was immediately rushed to a hospital.

Motorists block Road

The public and the students who were witness to the accident displayed their anger against the Police by blocking the road. They alleged that as the Police had placed a barricade to prevent people from escaping, the youth was injured and they should be held responsible.

V.V. Puram Police reached the spot and brought the situation under control.

There was tight Police bandobust for some time to prevent any untoward incident.

    Not just that, police Even push the barricade so that the person should fall!! I myself have witnessed it near empire road Mysore.

    It might be wrong on police to chase or act that is danger to riders.
    However, is there solution on how should police stop helmet less riders ?
    If they do nothing, riders might die in an accident ! Awareness has no impact. Do you think a college student doesn’t know importance of helmet ?

      They need to use technology to initiate disciplinary action and prosecution, it is safe for both police and public.
      Technology is so advanced now a days, need to adopt to it extensively to enforce law

      Agree…! It’s not wrong on police chase or act that is danger to riders. Talking about the helmet rule, how many are riding without helmet in front of police, on main road, on highways. I even filmed in Mandya busstand signal, where at least 15 two wheel riders had no helmet and waiting for the signal, the inspector had parked his bike on the road side, ignoring to take action on these helmet less riders, why not go do it there first ? Besides a pillion rider needs a helmet, over to it ISI marked helmets as rule.
      let’s not debate the chiken first or the egg first. The harrasment only on the Helmet rule is meaning less.
      please correct me if i am wrong ( ! )

    Unfortunately police are the easy targets for blame game. Who is preventing the students grin wearing the helmet which certainly protects them and why he should try to escape? Police work under tremendous pressure and by and large do a good job. We are all safe because of police and army . let’s respect them.

    I am sorry for the boy.
    But for whom are these helmet rules? Is it for the good of the people or the police?
    Morally speaking he should have stopped. Escaping from the police is another crime.
    He is equally (if not more) responsible.
    Had he stopped, this wouldn’t have occurred.
    Since it happened in the day light, he could have clearly seen the barricades.
    Had it been any other country no one would have blamed the police. In my opinion I put my foot down and say that it is not police’s responsibility. But that’s just my opinion.
    I feel sorry for the boy for whatever happened to him. May he recover fast

    It’s very easy to say , but for such a huge population it’s not easy to do that . No one knows who is riding whose bike .. public also should take responsibility for that . There was no need to do stunt, should have paid fine and walked..

  6. B.Harshavardhan says:

    Even after so many years after the helmet rule as been implemented.police can’t force the public to wear the helmet.its public duty to wear the helmet for their own sefety.
    And one more thing why fine should be in terms of money ?

    In my understanding the strict rule for wearing helment should be removed. I truly understand the helmet rule is for their own safety. when they do not bother about their own safety , there’s nothing which can be done. There are where this rule does not apply. In the name of this strict rule Police department is also misusing the policy. I myself have witness near Eshwar Temple where the police were on helmet check, and they had placed a man wearing a Khaki dress, without any sign of police who was trying to catch hold of these people who turned back esaceping, this resulted a accident , Me as public I questioned the Police officer about the man with Khaki should be responsible for this damage happened to the couple who met with the accident due to the escaping from the police check. The fraction of the minute the man with Khaki dissapeared from the spot and Police office pretented as if he did not know this person with Khaki dress.
    Well if they want they can go on Highways example MYS-BLR road , you can wittness all the truck s & Govt buses plying never try give space to overtake from the right hand side. Since they dont give space they are tend to over take from the Left hand side. which is very dangerous.
    Attn : Traffic police go stop this and fine or cancell their driving licence, than go trouble the Two wheelers for no wearing the helmet.

    It has become to much in Mysore even near Kuvempu nagar and near NIE college every evening they chase people both sides in such a way that when person is driving they immediately come and stop them and back of that person who will be coming losses his control .something change should be done and government has to take these into serious matter about these issues . And by having helmate it’s seriously irritating and not at all comfortable to drive.
