Kundapur, Sep 14: Sunil Chatra, owner of the well-known transport company, Sri Durgamba Transit Private Limited, died on spot in a road accident in Tamil Nadu on Friday, September 14.

The incident occurred in Namakkal district of Tamil Nadu at 3 pm. S Sunil Chatra (42) was one of the partners of well-known transport company, Drugamba Motors. He has left behind his father, mother, brothers, sister, wife and his three-year-old child.

According to sources, he had celebrated Ganesh Chathurti with family members in Kundapur on Thursday and had been to Karur to check the coaches of news buses being readied. It is said that the driver of his car lost control on the suburb highway at Karur. Sunil sustained serious injuries to his head and died on the spot due to loss of blood. His driver too is seriously injured in the accident. He has been admitted to hospital and his condition is said to be critical.

Definite reasons for the accident are still not known. But witnesses said that the vehicle was speeding and the driver applied sudden brakes to save a bicycle rider on the way and the vehicle lost control and toppled.

Durgamba Motors is one of the well-known and old transport companies in the state. Sunil Chatra is second among three sons of the founder of the organization and Kamalashile Brahmi Durgaparameshwari temple genetic managing trustee Shettypal Sachidananda Chatra. The deceased had indulged in transport business with his father after college education.

Final rites on Sunday

As post-mortem of the body was not performed till Friday evening, the mortal remains are likely to be brought from Tamil Nadu after Saturday. His relatives from Bengaluru have already reached Tamil Nadu. “The final rites will be held at the old family house at Hallihole on Sunday,” informed brother of the deceased, Anil Chatra.

    I drive a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, manual shift & it is a fantastic vehicle. But very powerful. Drivers need to know how to control the vehicle, for a matter of fact any vehicle. When a vehicle skids at high speedsthe driver normally tends to over-correct, ie position the front wheels away from the direction of the skid to get the vehicle back in control instead of in direction of the skid & then slow the vehicle down. This will cause most vehicles to topple almost immediately. Another point is he must not have been wearing his seat belt as most of us think we are invincible. Better to drive a manual shift than an automatic one. Easier to control.
    RIP Sir.

    Hard to believe this. I played cricket with him when we were at high school level. He was very much attached sports and passionate to sports in his earlier school life. More over Durgamba family gave me a life. I was working as part time conductor with them, when I was studying my graduation and post graduation. Today I have established my identity to national and international level with the help of great Chathra family. But, cannot forget the help of this family. they were/are really good at heart. May God give the strength to the bereaved family. RIP.

    RIP Sunil.
    For everyone's information, almost all of the SUVs available in India have no patented Centre of Gravity stability mechanism, as such they will flip over on curves or bends on speeds of more than 75 Kms/hour. None of the Japanese company SUVs, none of Indian SUVs. This patent is only available on few models of Range Rover, BMW, Volvo and American SUVs.
    Hence having a SUV should never be intended for speed, as it as no stability.

    It is very sad and unfortunate to know that Sunil Chatra passed away in an accident. Sri Durgamba is the best service both locally and out of state. I traveled last year from Udupi to Bangalore and it was a good trip. May the soul of Sunil RIP. Deepest condolences to his families and loved ones.
