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.
A 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.
