Default Youth suicides after ramming into Gowda's car

Youth rams Gowda's car, kills self-Bangalore-Cities-The Times of India

Quote:
....
The drama unfolded around 10.30 am when Gowda was travelling in his car from his house in Padmanabhanagar to his other residence, ‘Amogh’, in the same locality. When Gowda’s car reached an intersection, a car driven by Ramesh came from the opposite direction and collided with it. The bumper of Gowda’s car was disjointed. Nobody was injured.

While Gowda sat in the car, his gunman Boregowda alighted from the vehicle and gave Ramesh a tongue-lashing for driving recklessly in a residential area. He was allowed to go after being warned. No police complaint was lodged.

Meanwhile, angry supporters of Gowda started searching for Ramesh and a friend of his who was in the car. One of Gowda’s right-hand men and his henchmen went to Ramesh’s house in Kadirenahalli and reportedly threatened him with dire consequences, besides asking him to pay Rs 25,000 for repair. This forced Ramesh’s family to panic. But they paid Rs 10,000 to the driver, Khan.

Thats shocking !!!

Will Gowda hand over his suppporters to the cops ? Will he pay for the mental trauma his supporters have caused the family of the youth ?

I guess we all know the answers.

May the youth's soul RIP.

Really sad state of affairs, may his soul rest in peace.

What would have happened if gowda's car had collided with other person's car. Would then the victim be compensated for it. No, just show how powerful persons can get away with crimes so easily like this in India.

This is the menace the Gowda has created in and around southern K'nataka. They are arrogant and will not listen to anybody. They can get away with anything they do. Law does not apply to these kind of people. Hope somebody files a complaint.

Ramesh, may your soul rest in peace.

The only part that shocks me is that Gowda was not able to kill the story in the press. This happens on a daily basis around him, I guess they didn't expect the suicide part, otherwise this news would have never got out.

My heart goes out to this young man, he must have been terrorised out of his mind.

Edit: The TOI (mangalore edition) said nothing about the suicide, only that Gowda supporters are worried about the ill-omen from the accident, nice hushup job.

Thats very unfortunate and according to TOI ,as the Gowda clan supporters roughed up the chap and also threatened the family with dire consequences. Political Might of this man never ends and the poor chap was driven to suicide.

I see Gowda's Forrester on almost a daily basis because I stay in Padmanabhanagar. I am staying here since 5 years. Believe me, my older neighbours always used to tell me on how they had to be in his good books to get their houses built on their own sites with all the approvals. He and his henchmen are a terror in and around Bangalore. I am not surprised that Mr. Ramesh was terror struck when he hit Gowda's car. May his soul rest in peace.

They are all around Gowda, protected him from common people who might destroy his bumper.

Well news papers should hold onto this and question gowda who considers himself MR right.
By the way i doubt the money the youth paid actually reached gowda or what?

I think people from outside Karnataka exaggerate his qualities (BAD ones). He is same as any other politician. He is no terror or demon.
I hope someone registers a case against the people who went to the young guy's house to threaten.
