A road hump, built by the Electronics City Industries’ Association (ELCIA), allegedly cost a 27-year-old woman her life after she fell down from a two-wheeler on Hosur Road in Electronics City on Wednesday night. On Thursday, the victim’s relatives, protested against the association for allegedly constructing an unscientific road hump and threatened to take legal action.
The deceased has been identified as Sujatha, a resident of Thogur in Electronics City. The police said the incident took place at around 7.30 pm when Sujatha was riding pillion on her husband Prabhakar’s two-wheeler.
They were going to one of their relatives house and Prabhakar did not notice the hump.
When the two-wheeler hit the hump, Sujatha fell and suffered serious head injuries.
It is said that the road hump was ‘too steep’ and there were no signs on the road to indicate its presence. Electronics City Traffic police are investigating in this connection.
