In the first incident, 42-year-old T.N. Jnanesh, a resident of Srirampura, who was proceeding on Hunsur Road, was injured after he lost control of the bike and fell down as the LED serial lights wire got entangled to his neck near Paduvarahalli signal light. He has been admitted to a private hospital. 

V.V. Puram Traffic Police said that a truck had passed on the road and the wire was cut by a loaded truck and was dangling very low. Jnanesh, who was coming behind the truck, did not notice the wire and the wire got entangled to his neck.

In the second incident, a girl student suffered electric shock at Open Air Theatre, the Yuva Sambhrama venue in Manasagangothri. The student was from CPC Polytechnic. She was immediately rushed in a Police vehicle to a private hospital.
