BENGALURU: “Subramani sacrificed his life to take care of me and now I became an orphan,” said a distraught Lakshmamma (82), whose brother died in Wednesday’s gruesome serial accident on Lalbagh main road, in which two other pedestrians were also injured.

Will.jpgA resident of Tayappa Garden, Subramani (52) was knocked by a speeding car driven by Bhavatharini, an MBA student, who was said to be drunk.

“My life is shattered with Subramani’s death. Despite being a tailor, he had just two pairs of clothes. He was the sole bread winner of my family. He did not marry and lived with me for forty years. When he was young, I took care of him. Now I cannot live alone,” said Lakshmamma.

“On Wednesday night, he had dinner around 10.15 pm and left the house. He used to sleep in a room at Mavalli as my house does not have enough space. How could educated people drive after getting drunk? Let Bhavatharini come out from jail and I will go and ask her to bring my brother back,” Lakshmamma added.
