Karnataka: A shocking public apathy was displayed in Mysuru district of Karnataka when three people on a motorcycle were mowed down by a bus lay bleeding profusely on the road for long 60 minutes but received no help from the passerby.
The horrific incident’s video went viral on social media. The video shows one of the three bleeding men pleading to the passerby for help but nobody came for their rescue. Bystanders kept asking them about their whereabouts and one of the passerby said to the victim, “Drink water, they are unable to talk because of the pain.”
The incident took place on Friday around 3pm near Kolagala gate in Mysuru. The bystander was busy video graphing the victims rather than taking them to the hospital.
The victims were going to the HD Kote for the festival when KSRTC bus rammed against their motor cycle. Out of the three victims, one of them died on the spot and other two were taken to a nearby hospital where they later succumbed to their injuries.
The deceased have been identified as Ramesh, Mahesh and Manjunath, all related to each other.
Doctors said two of them could have been saved if brought to the hospital on time.
Police said a case has been registered and the bus driver has been arrested.
In a similar incident recently, 26-year-old Harish's body was severed in half after being hit by a speeding lorry near Bengaluru.
