BENGALURU: Five people were injured after an SUV rammed into a van at South End Circle on Wednesday night. The driver Vishnu (25), grandson of a liquor baron and industrialist late Audikeshavalu, was roughed up by the public for negligent driving. Police also found around 300 grams of narcotic substance in the SUV and hence a case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, has been booked against Vishnu.

It is said that two popular Kannada actors were in the SUV during the accident but escaped later. However, police denied it. Police said, “Around 12.30am, Vishnu, who was driving recklessly, rammed into a van heading towards Basavanagudi. The impact of the collision was such that the van toppled twice and the five people in the vehicle were injured. They caught Vishnu and started thrashing him and the passersby joined them.”

An eyewitness said, “All the people in the SUV were under the influence of alcohol and drugs. After the incident they started arguing that it was not their mistake. Hence the mob beat them. The actors escaped after the crowd gathered.”
