Mysore/Mysuru: Two young individuals, aged 22 and 21, tragically lost their lives, while a food delivery person named Mahadevaswamy sustained injuries when an SUV collided with their two-wheelers in the early hours of Apr. 14, near the All India Speech and Hearing (AIISH) Gate on Chaduranga Road. The deceased have been identified as Ullas and Shivani, while Mahadevaswamy has been identified as the injured party.
