The ghastly road accident happened on the busy Banjara Hills Road nine days ago destroying a family that has nothing to do in the scheme of things. Four engineering students were driving the car fast; the driver was drunk as were the rest in the car. While speeding the car had hit the divider, flung in the air and fell upon a car coming in the opposite direction. A techie Rajesh, who was driving the car died immediately and the family members were injured. The other person who was grievously injured was 9-year-old Ramya, who was Rajesh’s brother’s daughter whom he was picking up from school.
The accident grabbed headlines as much for the tragedy that struck the family in the car that had done no mistake what’s so ever, as the young driver who did not think twice to flout the rules, and was driving the car at top speed on a busy road in drunken state, despite many checks in place.
Today the nine-year-old young girl died after struggling for nine days. Her mother, who was also injured and was undergoing treatment, was only informed about her daughter’s ill fate one day before, and it was a heartrending situation.
