Techie killed in accident a day ahead of marriage

Staff Reporter

Police suspect that Lenin may have dozed off while driving


Lenin rammed the car he was driving into a van parked on the roadside

He was scheduled to tie the knot at Yadagirigutta temple today


HYDERABAD: Death came calling for a software engineer a day ahead of his marriage when the car he was driving ploughed into a van parked on the roadside on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Narsingi on Friday afternoon.

Thirty-two-year-old Ch. Lenin was scheduled to tie the knot at Sri Laxmi Narasimha Swamy temple in Yadagirigutta on Saturday.

A resident of B.N. Reddy Nagar, the techie was working in a software company at Madhapur. He was returning home from office when he apparently lost control and hit the van resulting in grievous head injuries. Death was instant for Lenin, police said.

As the car doors were locked from inside, police broke open the front door and removed the body. With the help of a phone number found on the LPG cylinder delivery receipt, police called his brother-in-law, Srinivas Rao, in Kukatpally and confirmed his identity. Police said workers were painting signboards on the ORR after parking their van laden with paints on the roadside around 3.15 p.m. “We suspect that Lenin might have dozed off while driving the car and rammed the van,” a police official said. The body was preserved at Osmania General Hospital for autopsy. A worker, Ranjith, who was inside the van, suffered injuries.

Two knocked down

In a separate incident, two boys delivering newspapers died on the spot after a hired RTC bus hit their motorcycle at YMCA in Marredpally on Friday morning. B. Shiva, 22, and his friend, G. Shekar, 22, both residents of Marredpally, were proceeding towards Patny Centre when the RTC bus going towards Jubilee Bus Station hit them leading to their instant death.

In another incident, a 23-year-old private employee was crushed to death under the wheels of a bus at Ameerpet on Friday. The accident occurred when the victim, V. Kiran Kumar, of Yellareddyguda, was trying to get down from a running bus.
