Mangaluru: Ballalbagh accident - BMW driver sent to 3-day police custody, car documents not in order


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Apr 11: Shravan Kumar, driver of the BMW car, who caused havoc on Saturday April 9 afternoon, at Ballalbagh in the city by losing control of his car, jumping the divider and crashing with several vehicles, was sent to three days of police custody.

Serious case under column 308 of IPC is registered against offender Shravan for driving the car at break neck speed on a busy road and injuring a woman severely. In addition, cases are slapped on him under columns 279, 337 and 338.


Shravan Kumar

As the cause of the accident was utter negligence on the part of the accused, police sought suggestion of law experts and registered a case under column 308, which is very rare in matters related to road accidents.

The records of the car which accused Shravan Kumar was driving are not proper. There are some doubts about their veracity. It is also said that the documents are not transferred to his name. Police sources said that investigation will be done in this aspect also.

Meanwhile, the condition of Preeti Manoj (47), resident of Karangalpady, who was riding a scooter and hit by the car, is said to be critical according to the information shared by the police.

    This is tragic. Hope police investigates all angles including driver medical condition, is he the real driver or is another Salman like case. Since many such accidents are seen with BMW, I can recall many in Bangalore, Pune, the BMW car should also be investigated. Hoping for quick recovery for the injured.

    Looks like he must have stolen ?Otherwise no reason to drive with high speed.Or any drugs in blood?Somehow e doesnt look like repenting his act.BMW is not for our mangalorean road ,that too high speed.Hope the innocent scooty woman recovers without serious problems.Wish her all the best.But dont allow this fellow till everything clears.One has to pay for what they did.

    Section 308 of IPC is Non Bailable offense so why 3 days under police custody??? Department has received a bribe or else if it was some common person, police would beat him in custody. This guy has money and Department is corrupt.

    What action has been taken on the people who trashed him? If no action is taken, it’s like sending a clear message. If any thing of such incident happens, don’t bother about the injured, just run for your life. STRICT ACTION HAS TO BE TAKEN AGAINST THOSE WHO TOOK LAW IN THEIR HANDS..

    Isn't it surprising that there is no mention of 'alcohol' test performed. Cause of accident is 'utter negligence' and no mention of 'drink driving'. Car documents not in order. ;) ;) ;). He will be let off.

    Yesterday Harish, Earth, had replied to my comment "What do you mean". Now it is clear that the car was registered in Haryana, the ownership was not transferred to the new person's name. The documents are not clear etc.etc. Now Mr Harish, what have you to say. There has to be a mechanism where, moment there is a sale of any vehicle the name should be automatically and compulsorily changed. Sale and purchase of vehicles should be online through an exchange -something like a stock market. The buyer , seller ad the amount paid should be verified.This will bring transparency, remove black money and prevent misuse of vehicles. Maybe not in this case , but vehicles not transferred to the new owner's name are usually used for illegal purposes, and the seller (old owner) has to face the music. In the Baliga murder case one person commited suicide as the car used was wrongly registered in his name. Apart from the driver of the vehicle, the tout who arranged the sale/purchase should also be arrested, in such cases.

    What is the use of helmet for rider and pillion if there are such accidents? Three days for accident at a large scale is not enough. It looks like attempt for murder. Do police check drivers of hi end cars with documents, only terrorise riders and pillion without helmet. Wishing Preeti a speed recovery.

    Innocent people are becoming victims of rich who are both reckless and greedy. They know they can get away with anything. Some big noises will be done for now by the law enforcement agencies, then after some time gone, everything falls back to its place for the rich. But, the victims families have to live with the pain for ever. A little compensation here and there, will not get back the life. These rich guys even have backup where someone else will be sitting in jail on their behalf and the criminal enjoying holidays in hong kong or bangkok.

    It was a sheer negligence on the part of BMW driver and the lady riding the scooter is an victim for no fault of hers. BMW driver deserves strict action and should be a lesson for others who flout traffic rules. Even the style of number plate is not in accordance with traffic rules and it is surprising how the car was moving on the road without action by police. Prayers for speedy recovery of scooter rider.
