BENGALURU: After nearly two months of investigation, Upparpet traffic police are set to file a chargesheet in the case where a 17-year old student was run over by a BMTC bus in Majestic.
According to sources, police have enough evidence of rash driving by the BMTC bus driver.
“We have found the driver to be negligent and the space for pedestrians was occupied by tea shops and other shops. We have also found that the girl had taken the wrong route to cross the road. We could not get any visual evidence as the CCTV cameras in Majestic bus stand were not functioning. We will mention all this in the chargesheet,” said a source.
A complaint has also been filed with the Lokayukta against the apathy of the authorities who failed to provide infrastructure for pedestrians.
On October 19, Poornima Sundar, a first-year PUC student and a resident of Balepet was mowed down by a BMTC bus when she was trying to cross the road. Poornima, a student of Mount Carmel College, was heading to her college. The incident happened when the bus was entering the terminus from Krishna Flour Mills end.
