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.

How long does it take to identify the people using the latest mobile tracking technology (used in the Adiga case)? Was the reporter very sure these were doctors? How did the culprits run away from that place at that time, without any assistance? Hope the police can close this one soon by giving justice to the two young men. God give strength to the parents/family of the men.

Sad loss of innocents lives.

Very sad...Why they are not disclosing the names of the doctors, because they are rich & influential.
Make them pay heavy compensation, so that family is not affected any way.

How ironic that innocents were killed by the so-called "Doctors" who are otherwise supposed to be saving lives!!
thousands of lives have already been lost due to liquor consumption,how many more have to be lost before the govt. decides to ban liquor?
the govt. is not interested in banning tobacco,liquor and gutka. A statuatory warning is printed on these saying that they are injurious to health!
Instead PLASTICS are banned beacuse they INDIRECTLY affect human lives,and helemts have been made compulsory!!
Why ban plastics? just print it out that they are injurious to man and his environment! let the people choose for themselves just the way they are made to choose for themselves about liquor and tobacco!
What DIRECTLY kills people hasn't yet been banned!If the govt. is seroius in its concerns over the lives of people, then immediate measures have to be taken to prove it!!

This has become such a common news that we tend to turn a blind eye towards it.
Drunken driving!
Drunken driving is banned,but who cares for rules? If rules as important as these cannot be followed, the last thing to do is to ban liquor itself! Not that people won't start smuggling liquor after that,but a lot of innocent lives atleast can be saved!If people don't value their own lives,by drinking themselves to death,they will atleast be able to extend the courtesy of allowing other people to live!
It's high time the government did something about drunkards and their habits.

Sad indeed!
The doctors who are to be the Life Protectors, have turned upto be Death Invitees.
All those who drive under the influence of Alcohol to be strictly punished.
Having said that even those who are deeased are to be checked to see if they too were under the influence of alcohol.

Very sad incidents!
People who should be role models to others are themselves so irresponsible!
From who the common man will derive inspiration now ?
Politicians? Religious heads? Bureaucrats? Educationist ?

If trend setters behave so irresponsibly, how will the society be transformed?
Sadly, we have changed our time from bad to WORST before handing over to next generation!
