According to the police, 16 students were on their way to Movadi private school in a private Omni car from Hemmadi. The accident took place when the Omni driver tried to take a turn to the right side of the road. A private bus on route to Kundapur crashed into the Omni.

The Omni was totally damaged due to the impact. Three students were killed on the spot. The other students were admitted to private hospitals in Kundapur and Udupi, out of which four others also died.

The Gangolli Police have registered the case.


  1. I hope serious action is taken against the omni driver. 16 people in a 8seater death vehicle. The safety rating of Omni is zero and it’s still been sold in the market. I urge the parents of the kids to register a case against the omni driver as well as the bus driver. The bus driver might be wrong but the Omni driver is equally responsible for this. The lives might not come back but it should be a lesson for the unsafe drivers. All the little angels soul rest in peace.
