HYDERABAD:  A 48-year-old man, who received severe injuries in a road accident at Champapet on Friday, was denied admission at a corporate hospital citing shortage of beds. His family stated that due to shortage of beds in the nearby hospital, they had to rush to another hospital for treatment, where he died. Rao was hit by an RTC bus. A case of rash and negligent driving causing death has been registered against the driver. 

A resident of Badangpet, he was going to office on Friday morning when an RTC bus hit his bike near the Gandhi statue at Champapet. His son K Leela Pavan Kishore rushed to the spot and shifted him to a corporate hospital which is less than 2 km from the accident spot.
