In a tragic incident, a pregnant woman (26) and her one-and-a-half-year old son died on the spot after their two-wheeler was hit by a KSRTC bus near cemetery on Chamundi Hills Road on Monday.
The victims have been identified as Anupama and Poorvik. According to sources, Anupama, a six-month pregnant, her husband Swamy and their son, were going on their two-wheeler for a regular medical check-up when the bus (KA 10 F0145) rammed their bike from behind, resulting in the mishap. Anupama and Poorvik died on the spot, while Swami suffered injuries. Anupama was crushed under the wheels of the bus.
People, who were present at the spot, blamed that the accident occurred because of the buses using the Chamundi Hills Road. It is said that buses usually do not take this route but because of the road constructions, buses travelling to Ooty take this road.
Traffic ACP Madaiah along with Siddharthanagar Traffic Police Station Sub Inspector Harish Kumar visited the spot. A case has been registered.
