Bike Rider Injured at Nanthur in Hit-and-run
Mangaluru: In a hit-and-run case a bike rider has been injured at Nanthur here on July 31.
The injured has been identified as Ravishanker (46), a resident of Jayanagar Maroli.
According to sources, Ravishanker was on his way to the shop to buy grocery. When he reached near Nanthur, a Swift car bearing registration number KA 19 ME 8819, hit the bike which Ravishanker was riding. Ravishanker was thrown to the ground and sustained injuries on the head.
Speaking to mangalorean.com Abdul Ayaz who brought Ravishanker to the hospital said, “We were on our way to Mangaluru from Kasargod. We saw people gathered at Nanthur. We got down from the car and went to see what was happening, we saw a man lying on the side of the road with injuries. People had gathered but no one was ready to take him to the hospital. Finally, we decided to admit him to the hospital. We thought of admitting him to A J Hospital. But the injured person was conscious and asked us to admit him to the KMC hospital.
Ravishanker was immediately shifted to KMC hospital by Abdul Ayaz in his car. Ravishanker had been pleading for help for about an hour but no one was ready to take him to the hospital. A disgusting attitude of the people who were just watching an injured person without helping him. We need to bring more and more awareness among the people to help accident victims. Life is very precious, tomorrow it may be me or you, everyone needs to be helped in such a situation.
Anyone helping an accident victim will not face any problems with the police as per the order by the Police commissioner Chandra Sekhar.
Ravishanker’s family thanked Abdul Ayaz for his help in shifting Ravishanker to the hospital and saving his life. Ravishanker sustained head injuries and is admitted to the KMC hospital.
