Fatal fall:Fire and Emergency Services personnel searching for Aditya after a car fell into Bellandur Lake in the early hours of Wednesday.

BANGALORE: A 26-year-old businessman, who was sitting on top of a car, is reportedly missing after the vehicle fell into the Bellandur Lake in the early hours of Wednesday.

According to the police, Aditya Bhogaraj (26) was going in a car along with his friends Mohit Manjunath, Kishore Kumar, Vinod Kumar and Soumya Naidu. The car was driven by Mohit. As they were nearing the lake, Aditya climbed on the top of the vehicle.

It was around 3 a.m. that they had reached the lake and it was drizzling. Mohit lost control over the vehicle and it went down the lake.

Around 5 a.m. personnel of the nearby Cauvery Driving School noticed the occupants of the car struggling to come out. They called the police and the Fire and Emergency personnel and rushed to their rescue. All the four occupants, who suffered minor injuries, came out and noticed Aditya missing.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) B.N.S. Reddy said all the five had allegedly consumed alcohol. “We don't know where Aditya has gone. We suspect he might have fallen down as there is nothing to hold on to on the top. His mobile remains switched off,” he said.
