Being an ardent fan of this car, it is heart wrenching to see it in such a sad state.

Happened in Thrissur, Kerala. One killed and 4 others seriously injured. All of them in their early 20s. As per report, it happened at 1.30 am, when the car rammed into an electric transformer, and the transformer and the electric posts fell on to the car mangling it.
Wow, I can't believe only 1 died. Seems to be very fortunate for the others. I love the Baleno too, it was my previous car. But it became a big hassle to maintain since Maruti doesn't have many parts. There are some after market parts but of very low quality. People should think before giving their kids such old used cars. It might not have been a driver error.

Woah. I have not seen any such accident like this. Looks like a high speed rear-ending case. The poor camel is fully wedged completely into the front compartment. The occupants would be very lucky if they survived. A camel easily weights over 500kg, so that much mass went right through the front driver section.

Any additional news about this?

I know phone companies don't give out the address attached to the phone number unless it is from cops with a valid request.

Correct me if I am wrong.
I see that schakravarthy has already given details. A few points from my experience are below.

This is very much needed for vehicle transfers/sale or hypothecation. If you buy a vehicle how will you know if it's loan (if mentioned in RC) is closed or not? This is the only way.

When you sell your vehicle you must get this paper to prove that it's no longer in your name.

Well, you may feel threatened by such details being given out. Frankly if someone wanted to do mischief this method is the least of your worries.

I use "your" purely in a general all India population encompassing manner.

And it's not just in Karnataka. Almost every state offers this in one or other way.

You may say it must go via official RTO channels. In Indiranagar RTO there is just 1(one, single, uno, ek) main RTO inspector. He does Learner licenses, fitness certs., this and that. If you give this task too, he will run away.

Again speaking generally, anyone can pay an RTO tout 100-200 and get say, Sunny Leone's (she likes only bald, bespectacled men with OHC cars) address.

Man, with all due respect, phone companies are not steel bank vaults. It's a vault built with chicken mesh.

For 5 (very low) digit rupees any C, D or Z minus quality detective or even that CID actor on TV (forgot the name; wears many rings) can get your annual phone records.

This is of course invalid in court. Feel happy or scared, it's a fact.

Note: I've not tested these illegal methods. I've heard this from some birds flying near my house. Owls.

Owls always lie, say the crows.

This happened in outskirts of my city on highway during daytime. Apparently there were 4 people in car and the driver lost control and hit the outside barrier. Damage is extensive with whole left side ripped off. The car looks like a Datsun Go/ Go+.

Hemant,
Just a suggestion. Can you try reaching out to Abhishek Goyal? https://twitter.com/dcptreastbcp / https://twitter.com/goyal_abhei
He is the most tech-savvy IPS officer in Bangalore AFAIK. Unlikely that you will be ignored.

What else should one expect from a car that was recommended by the Latin NCAP program officials to be put out of production? Its sad to see that many car makers don't see the risk in putting Indians on such vehicles. While they know these tin cans cannot be sold elsewhere, so they even have heavier and well built variants of the same cars for the export variants.

The Government is least interested, worse still - even the customers do not realize the importance of safety features, as they don't seem to demand them.

The side could have been cut after the accident to take out the victims. Without knowing the speed its hard to put the blame entirely on the car build, although its does look like its a high speed crash. The car does have a general poor build as evidenced by the crash tests.

The A and B pillars have been ripped apart and lying entangled with guard rails.

If you look closely, you'll see that the left side front and rear doors are stuck into the guard rail. Moreover, this place hasn't got much of procedure to follow in case of such accidents so highly unlikely that the shell was cut open.

Fiat Linea vs a private bus, near Kochi on 22nd August.

Yes, this does look like a Datsun Go.
The Go scored a ZERO in Latin NCAP tests, with the reason being that its body shell was not rigid enough to withstand a high speed crash. No survival space in the cabin in the event of a crash, as the body was found to deform.
I think Latin NCAP itself, or some other international body, asked Datsun to immediately stop the sale of the Go, wherever it was being sold. But apparently, Indian authorities rubbished their claims saying "It is up to our standards and can be sold".
Datsun did not care and still continues to sell it. So much so that they even released an MPV on the same platform!
This is just sad. Utter negligence to people's lives.

I'm pretty sure that if the bus had proper under-run protection at a low height, we wouldn't see even this much damage in the passenger compartment. Something like this:
Name:  Volvo9700Frontpanel.jpg
Views: 7214
Size:  50.3 KB
I say this because the damage is not to the front of the car, rather it is to the top of the bonnet and windshield area, indicating that the primary crash absorbing structure (i.e. engine compartment) went under the bus.

Makes me want to go out and buy a Fiat.

What speeds did this happen at?!
Nonetheless, the Linea fared exceptionally well! The primary crumple zones, i.e. the front bumper, fenders have not even been involved and yet there's not much intrusion in the cabin.

Linea Owners can confirm this:
I see alloys, but no Steering mounted controls, and no airbags as well.
Is this the Active Variant?
or the Dynamic one ? In that case, why didnt the Airbag deploy?

If this is indeed the Dynamic variant, then it should have airbags, you're right.
The impact sensors are generally located in the bumpers at around 4 points, AFAIK. Since the impact was mostly on the top part of the bumper, and mostly bonnet and windshield, the sensors wouldn't have detected a crash. Hence, the airbags may not have deployed.
