Mysuru/Shadnagar: Two pilgrims from Mysuru were killed on the spot, while four others sustained injuries in a road accident that took place on Shadnagar Bypass Road near Shadnagar in Telangana last evening.

All the six persons, travelling in a Maruti Omni Van, are  residents of Mysuru and were on their way to Kashi, when the accident occurred. They were proceeding near Hanuman Temple on the bypass road, when the driver lost control over the steering, resulting in overturning of the vehicle before ramming a roadside tree, killing two persons on the spot and seriously injuring four others.

Police said, the condition of Madan is serious and is being treated in ICU, while three others are being treated in the Emergency Ward of the hospital. The rash and negligent driving is suspected to be the reason behind the accident, say Police.
