Mangalore: Drunken driving by young doctors - two killed

Mangalore: New twist to Yeyyadi accident - police say young doctors were not drunk

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (DV)

Update: February 18

Mangalore, Feb 18: In a twist to the accident case at Yeyyadi that took the lives of two youths, the police now claim that the young doctors whose car caused the accident were not under the influence of alcohol.

The accident occured at 12.30 am on Sunday February 17. Two young doctors, a boy and a girl who were allegedly in a drunken stupor, rammed their car into Yogish and Jayaprakash at Yeyyadi, killing them both.

However, Kavoor police now claim that the youngsters were not drunk, and that it was in fact the deceased persons who were on the wrong side of the road.

A police personnel told Daijiworld that the boy, who has been identified as Shivanand Shetty of Udupi, was on his way to drop the girl at Konchadi, and was on the right side of the road.

The identity of the girl has not been revealed.

Though initial reports stated that the two had escaped from the spot, it was later learnt that Shivanand was admitted to a hospital in the city.

Shivanand Shetty has been released on bail.

Mangalore, Feb 17: In a shocking incident, two persons were killed in the early hours of Sunday February 17 after their two-wheeler was hit by a car driven by young doctors, who were allegedly drunk.

The accident occured near Yeyyadi petrol bunk at around 12.30 am.

The deceased have been identified as Yogish (27) and Jayaprakash (23), both electricians by profession.

Yogish was the son of Chandrahas and Sunitha of Moodushedde, while Jayaprakash was the son of Somappa Nayak and Neelamma of Veerakamba, Kalladka.

It is said that the two young doctors, a girl and a boy whose identities are yet to be established, were driving in a drunken stupor. The Chevrolet car (MH 04 DW 1237), which was at a high speed, went out of control and rammed into several spots along the road before dashing into the two-wheeler ridden by Yogish and Jayaprakash near Yeyyadi petrol bunk.

The impact of the accident was such that both Yogish and Jayaprakash were flung far off. The vehicles skid for a few metres before coming to a stop. The car also dashed into the compound wall of a school nearby.

Sadly, as it was late night, Yogish and Jayaprakash lay bleeding heavily on the road till help came at around 2.30 am, which resulted in their death.

They had returned after some work at Suratkal. Jayaprakash stopped the bike near the petrol bunk to drop Yogish, when the accident occured.

It was later learnt that the youth who was driving the car was admitted to a hospital in the city, while the girl escaped with minor injuries.

Kavoor police have registered a case and seized the car.

why don't u think before you write such ridiculous comments defending a drunken man on a killing spree..
A.)he's not a doctor he's a how can he help people/patients?by pulling their teeth out
B.)even if you know him personally that's got nothin to do with this case.hes still a drunk man who killed innocents cause of his reckless driving.i don't think either the girl or the man deserve to be doctors because if u know him "personally"a you claim you should be knowing that he's still a student a dental college and hasn't graduated as a dentist yet.

Its a common thing for high speed accidents to occur on these concretized roads, as in a hurry to give complition reports basic facilities such as speed breakers, reflectors and proper footpath elavation and barriers have not been put in place. these can be observed on so many other roads, even in front of pabbas near lalbagh the speed breakers have come off, resulting in a lot of high spped accidents. the other important point is the lack of emergency services, the injured men were there for nearly two hours! this is the saddest part of the whole accident. accident can happen in anybodys hand, doctor or not, durnk or not, but what services are being provided to us citizens in such emergencies ?? Instead of blindly pointing fingers at who was at fault, responsible citizens and authorities should take up steps to 1. avoid such accidents and 2. improve emergency response services so that lives can be saved

Mr victor how do you know that the driver was drunk. guess you are one of those people who is contributing towards the N-number of rumors getting around this case....itz treated doctor or the investigating doctor who has to confirm whether the driver was drunk or no. itz not you or me who has to decide on it. so let us wait what the final reports says.

how sad people come to a conclusion based on photos and initial news reports. i know dr shivanand shetty. he is a gem of a person , goes out of his way to help people/patients. i don't know the cause of the accident but please wait for final report before giving such harsh statements.i feel sad that two lives have been lost, but we just can't label every accident in which a mumbai registration car was involved to be a "drunk hit and run case".

The above story doesnot mentioned the time and date of arrest and blood sample taken from the driver.It is not clear that who was driving the car wether boy or the girl.Whatever it may be after midnight roaming in a car with young girl in a car at high speed and ing a girl home early morning says it all.There ins no human value in life then where is the value for others blood and life?

Monday, February 18, 2013

If not under the influence of alcohol ,Was the Girl Driving (learning how to drive) the car. Most often when the drivers are new they get panic and press the accelerator and go on bumping.

The car number plate bears the Maharashtra Registration No. The number 04 on it indicates that the car has been registered within the down town metropolitan jurisdiction. Keeping this in mind, will the Mangalore RTO Authorities get their act together .. onto their basics and cross check with their Bombay (Maharashtra) RTO counterparts if the car belonged to the deceased / stolen etc? Am sure they must have already found the registration papers and identified the rightful owner ... just in case .....

Based on this, may be they can make a possible headway and things can culminate immediately.

Am surprised ... what's a Bombay registered car doing on the streets of Mangalore and that too in the wee hours ???? Quiet strange !!!

Mangalore: New twist to Yeyyadi accident - police say young doctors were not drunk.

Important here to note - It is police speaking and not the doctors. Looks like Police and doctors were together in the Bar. Otherwise how police know doctors were not drunk?

Jaimini Sharjah, you are 100% right...of course its happening in our GREAT India...we proudly talk about our country but these things can happen only in India....poor boys lost their life and police twisted the entire story....when the help arrieved after 2 hours who took that young doctor to the hospital, left those two boys to bleed to death....whoever it was very insane ...of course money rules India...even so called moral policing useless BD's are not so dare to go against influential people, they are somewhere looking for poor innocent youngsters to show their power.....public has to stand up against this cruel law and order...they have to treat rich and poor equally....every wrong act should be punished accordingly....justice should be done to those poor families, they have lost their young boys who could have looked after them....ashamed of our so called police twist !

The both the reports were true. The first one soon after the accident reported as the drivers of the car were drunk and the second one after 24 hours stating that they are not drunk..Off course they are not drunk now but if released from Police custody they will be again drunk .. This is possible.. everything can be changed if you have money & power.. This is one of such example.. Valagina guttu shivane balla.. Feel sorry for the two boys who lost thier lives because of someone else's negligence. May the Lord provide strength to bear this loss to thier families.. It's tuff!!

Dear BD's, your intervention is required here to get the justice to the victims family and prove it that you are all can do something better than doing something which is not entertained by anyone.

Intervention and getting justice is really appriciated which you all never do.....Also how come the accused was admitted to the hospital when none were there to help those poor boys. Something fishy.....Am sure nice bribe would have been given to the Police Authority else how they came to a conclusion so fast when there was no eye witness. Why there is no fair justice to the poor.

Monday, February 18, 2013

THERE IS "ONE GOD ABOVE US"who was watching every thing from above and he will give the judgement for the incident so happened either in the court of justice or justice from his court outside the judicial court there is no doubt for this.As some of them commented that the accident is not hit head on but the scooter was hit from behind very clearly shows that the car driver(either drunk or not)is at fault.Police who have taken bribe in this TWIST may temporarily enjoy the cake but will repent when god opens his eyes and folds his hands.

First of all How Police came to know that the car occupents drunk. where the police met the driver of the car at the same time of the accident. There are so many people travel/drive after midnight, I dont think everyone driving afer midnight is drunk.

How convinient of the Police.
Note the below,
1. The doctor ping the girl home at 12.30 am.
If the pictures are of the exact crime scene, what is the bumper of the car doing on the other side of the tree. India is a right hand drive. Noting this the bumper of the car should be on the opposite side of the 2 wheeler.
2. If the 2 wheeler was on the wrong side of the road, a head on collision would for sure turn the direction of the 2 wheeler. Here the 2 wheeler looks like it hus just fallen.
3. Now if the 2 wheeler was hit from behind, isnt it the fault of the car driver. The impact, does not look like the car was in slow speed.
4. Since the 2 wheeler look like it is completely damaged from the back side, then even the car was on the wrong side of the road.

Life of 2 innocent individuals gone. Knowing the procedures, quickly doctors go and get themselves admitted in the hospital to avoid questionning or going to jail.
Now police say they were not drunk.

How nice.

Police should have continued the story such as....the poor medicos were returning from temple after performing prayers at 12.30 A.M. and the "car" was under the influence of the alcohol and so on. These police know that we, the public are fools and can be handled easily. The poor parents of the victims have already lost their livelihood...We have to pity ourselves for being part of this society.

People those who have money can twist the story the way they want and those who don't have money only have a option to shut their mouth. We as public know about it and still we keep quit as the victim here is not connected to us.
There should be a way to tackle this type of problems. we all common man have to be one because this can also happen to us tomorrow.

Police must be right because the poor medicos must be coming from the nearby "village" and it is quite possible for the next twist to brand the scooter borne as drunk.

Twist in the case-my foot ? How can anyone prove that the driver was not drunk after more than 24 hours-being late night on the streets at 12.30am -where else a young couple could be other than on a drinking spree at a pub. If they were not drunk, how come they absconded from the accident scene. They could have call for help and save those two souls that they knocked down. You may escape from the hands of law but you will not go far before the eyes of God. Admit your guilt and face the consequences. Period

Good observation from Victor Tauro. The scooter has been hit from behind and the backside of the schooter is fully damaged, while front side looks undamaged, which shows, the poor boys were hit from behind. And if the boys were on wrong side, even the doctors were also in wrong side. File case against those alive, not those innocent boys dead! I hope the second finding will not be that those dead were under alcohol!!!

Mr.Victor Tauro, Permud, you are 100% correct. If we carefully watch the scooter, its rear portion totally damaged. How could it happen, if the scooter was in wrong direction?. Your philosophy is right,1) surname is Shetty 2) while pouring lakhs of rupees for medical seat, some more poured to (?) get rid if this accident/case. After all he has to save human life (?) in the future.

These are white collar murderers. Again police are twisting the cases. How much money from top to bottom has been poured here.

When justice is denied in front ofour own eyes, that us why the rise of Maoist, naxalism starts as they loose faith with the system. Who are the root cause for these type of movements? Isn't it is the police and the rich, powerful.

How come the driver who has been released on bail so fast? If it has been done by poor driver just an accident, then he would have been decaying in the police station for several weeks.

Cannot understand why the driver doctor has left the accident site. Request the social activists to take up this case and fight for the victims. Unless people raise their voices like in the case of Nirbaya, otherwise nothing is going to change.

It really is amazing to note that we mangaloreans are so opiniated and are willing to speculate on any matter at the of a hat. Let the experts worry about the issue. It is not unheard for a car to lose control while attempting to avoid a wayward two wheeler. Besides the pics clearly indicate that the roads may have been wet and increase the possibility that vehicles may lose control.
Why is it that any accident in Mangalore is immediately made out to be a result of drunken driving?

Why was Mr. Shivanand from Udupi driving a Mumbai registered car in mangalore anyway ???
however, we people do have the tendency to blame the bigger vehicle for any accident irrespective of whether it is justified or not....

What is Mangalore police doing to arrest the absconding criminals? Why people of Mangalore are keeping silent and where are the protesters now? Why 'Saffron' and 'Green' outfits are silent now?

Indeed it is an unfortunate and sad news.May souls of departed rest in peace.
But the funny thing here is accident happened because of drunken young doctors.Doctor's profession is noble profession and supposed to save the life of the people.Here in this case this is other way around and doctors killed two young people.
As some people have commented about BD/Rama sene/Vamana sene,aaSene,ee sene.They are of course there only on certain occasion when there is no need of their presence like on Valentine day etc just to burn some outdated valentine days's card and gain some mileage in front of camera/media.They wanted to be in limelight by showing their faces.But when their presence is genuinely required like places like this accidents,drug mafia,rapes,sexual abuse they are not there for victims safety/security and utter no words.That is the trend of those Bds,Rama/dhooma/vanara sene etc.They are always there for wrong reasons.Their motto is "Present in wrong places for wrong reasons without any fruitful results,show their faces in front of camera with long naama on their forehead.That is all.

Sad news. Doctors who are responsible must be questioned well and taken all details. Mostly saturday night they enjoy, do disco dance, etc and rush. These cannot be doctors, so the punishment goes up. Let the details tell us what they did and how they killed the innocent young ones. Death penalty applies to the doctors. Good bye to doctors. Go and find out where these electricans have gone.

Dear Sandeep and Rudolf both of you are right.Most of the medical students you find in private colleges are childrens of filthy rich.Irony is they brought up with don't care attitude.Five years of MBBS is picnic spot for them with dine,dance,wine,woman what else.Well equiped imported cars and driving under the influence of alchohol and drug.To become a good doctor one has to burn mid night oil.I bet this kind of breed will become butchers rather than surgeons.God save my country.

@Sandeep Shetty, you are very right bro!! Most of those pursuing medical education by paying crores as capitation fees are spoiled brats!! In that, their aim is just to acquire the degree by hook or by crook resulting in a very poor product!! Such type of doctors are very dangerous to the Society!!

I used to always adore doctors like Gods with big degrees behind their names, BUT NO MORE RESPECT AFTER A SERIES OF DISGUSTING EXPERIENCES BOTH ON THE EXPERTISE FRONT AND ETHICAL FRONT!!!

Our old MBBS physicians who remembered by heart our family history and used to treat us right from toothache to serious issues were the best, and I miss them!!

Our laws are weak. Implementation is weaker. Punishment should set an example to others to discouraging them from getting involved in such things.

These days doctors pay 1 - 2 crores for a PG medical seat, so what more can we expect from these spoiled rich kids. They are going to kill many more with their incompetence in the years to come, this is just practise for them............ god help and protect us from these scum.

@Harold Dcunha, now the Apex court has made it absolutely clear that accident victims should get immediate help first and then all the police formalities and also no hospital should deny emergency treatment, even there is no harassment to the people who come forward to help! A few years ago, I had accompanied a critically injured RTA casualty to a reputed hospital but had absolutely no problems even though I signed for the patient!!!

It is clear the accused being doctors have escaped the scene to escape stringent punishment of more years of imprisonment if they were medically checked and blood alcohol levels found beyond stipulated limits!!Kissi ka beta, bhai, baap mar gaya tho kisi aur ka kya jata hai!!!

If drunkenness of the doctors caused the accident, they should be hung in public.

RIP friends! Kare koi bhar koi!!!Doctors or mercenaries of death!! If professional doctors act so irresponsibly then what can be expected from the aam aadmi??

Drunken driving now invites a minimum punishment of 2 years and up to 10 years!!

If the accused are absconding vital evidence of blood alcohol levels will be lost making the case weak!! This is how the rich and famous hoodwink the law!! Jai ho!!

A sad and tragic death of two,sometime driving for joy or a drunken driving and it's deadly impact.Young Doctors should be punished severly for their total negligence towards the injured without any immediate medical help or to a nearest hospital or an ambulance,A clear example how the Young doctors showing their respect and care towards their patients. 'May their soul rest in peace'.

Now a days the so called professionals, majority of them lack ethics and values and these are white collar criminals.

Most disgusting part is the accident took place midnight 12.30 am and the help reached at 2.30 am.

Definitely there may be many vehicles passed during that 2 hrs and nobody bothered to called ambulance nor police. Those who are travelling in vehicle at mid night definitely most of them are white collar persons. Not bothered attitude towards citizens and some of them will come for night vigil protests to show solidarity, photograph and publicity.

Some thing drastically wrong in our system. Might be, those who help are meeting undue harassment by the police. Administration should build confidence with the public.

Heartfelt condolenses to the bereaved members of the family.

Request the authorities to arrest the culprit at the earliest and give them the harshest punishment.

Murder charges should be brought against the driver and his/her accomplice and made to pay heavy damages to the deceased family. I am sure they can afford it.

I hope the locals hunt the absconders and maim them so they are confined to a wheel chair for the rest of their lives. Each passing moment & day they have to think of the poor souls who they had killed.

Very sad indeed to note the death of two innocent lives.

Well, you would see evil and corrupt people in all professions, from chaprasi to court judges.

Doctors supposed to be role models to the society but don't forget they are also human and tend tend to do mistakes. But Generalizing a particular profession due to some unfortunate incidents is not fair. Having said, these two who involved in the drunken driving should not go scot free.
