Mangaluru: Hit and Run Accident-Milagres College Staff John Monteiro Dies in Hospital


Mangaluru: Martin John Monteiro, aged 59, a attender at Milagres PU College died at Fr Muller’s Hospital this morning, 11 June 2015, after he was admitted last night due to a hit and run accident. He had served at Milagres for nearly 36 years.


Wednesday night, 10 June 2015, at around 8pm, while John Monteiro on his way home from work was crossing the road near Jeppu Compound/Nandigudda, a speeding motorbike hit him and sped from the scene. Seriously injured, John was quickly rushed to Fr Muller’s Hospital, but he succumbed to injuries this morning.

Martin John Monteiro leaves behind his wife, and two children. Police are investigating this hit and run case.


  1. Atrocious on the part of the motor cycle driver to run over Sri Monteiro and then make an attempt to escape. However it will not be long before the Police nab the culprit and book him.

    I join several others in offering condolences to all the members of the bereaved family specially Mrs. Monteiro.

    It is expedient that suitable compensation is paid to the family.

  2. Indeed a tragic death for this man, who never knew that death was coming. Hitting someone and fleeing away is not a good sign-the biker should turn himself in to the police before he takes the curse on him from the bereaved family and their relatives and friends.

    May John Monteiro’s soul rest in peace

  3. John Uncle was a very friendly man- He used to greet me whenever I came to college. Really a sad news that he faced death very tragically.

    Me and my friends will terribly miss him, for he was there when we needed him. May God grant him eternal peace.
