    It's another photo-op. Look at Amarnath Shetty and most of them in that third photo. They are posing towards the photographers. Their presence is precisely to exploit this limelight due to an accident involving Toyota Fortuner and another vehicle that could kill a person behind the wheels of Fortuner.
