On Saturday morning, two post-graduate students riding pillion on their collegemate’s bike were flung from the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) elevated road, plummeting from roughly 30 feet near Yelahanka. The victims were returning from Nandi Hills after witnessing the sunrise, according to the report.
Amit Singh, 29, of Delhi, and Amol Pramod Amte, 29, of Maharashtra, were both killed. They were National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) students in HSR Layout. The authorities assume that one of the causes of losing control of the bike was a lack of sleep. Saurav Dev, 28, of Rajasthan, was injured while riding his motorcycle.
The accident occurred at about 10.45 a.m. while the trio was returning to the city after touring Nandi Hills. It was a case of triple riding, and the speedy bike spun out of control, and one of them hopped on the stand of the two-wheeler, thinking it was a footrest. “It appears that the side stand was released and either hit the road or the concrete barrier while the bike was moving, causing the pillion riders to be thrown in the air and fall down from the expressway to the service road. Saurav Dev was wearing a helmet, and another person was wearing a half helmet. “We will learn more details once Saurabh is able to share the details,” said the police.
The cops believe the trio had not slept in a long time. “All of them lived in paying guest accommodations, and they assumed that they were sleep deprived, which may have contributed to the incident,” one officer stated.
