'No connection with car'

When questioned about the gruesome accident which claimed the lives of two, the BJP Minister not only refused to comment but also tried to brush talk of his son's alleged involvement in the accident under the carpet. The minister said he came to know about the accident and heard about its casualties, but still, as a minister, he felt it would be inappropriate giving a statement about the same while the case is being investigated. However, when asked about his son's presence in the car, the minister dodged the question by saying that his son's name is neither present in the FIR, not is he in any way connected with the alleged car.

The accident occurred on February 10 when a high-end Mercedes Benz, which was carrying five passengers, was traveling back to Bengaluru after sightseeing around Hampi. Two people, including a pedestrian and a car passenger, lost their lives in the accident. Days after the accident, Karnataka Congress sought a probe into the matter alleging that the son of a sitting BJP minister was involved.
