Hyderabad: Telangana state Road Transport authority (RTA) has revoked the driving license of Hyderabad-based businessman Kondaveeti Ashwin, who was involved in an accident in Madhapur. This comes two months after a case was booked against Ashwin for driving in an inebriated condition which resulted in an accident and the death of a biker.
On 24 November around 2.30 a.m. Ashwin was driving his BMW (AP 10AX6267) in a drunken state. He was reportedly driving on the wrong side of the road when his car hit a Royal Enfield. The biker died on the spot while the pillion rider suffered severe injuries. The breathalyzer showed 185 mg/100 ml of blood alcohol content against the permissible limit of 30mg/100 ml. Ashwin also had two previous cases of drunken driving, it was found.
A criminal case has been registered against Ashwin under Section 304 (A), 337, 336 of the Indian Penal code and Section 184, 185 of the Motor Vehicles Act. Meanwhile, acting upon the proposal sent by Cyberabad traffic police, the RTA has revoked his driving license.
Earlier, the RTA had also suspended the driving license of actor Rajashekar for six months. On November 13, the actor, while returning home from Ramoji Film City, had a narrow escape on the Outer Ring Road. His Mercedes hit the median, turned turtle, and fell on the opposite lane of the ORR.
Biodiversity Flyover Accidents: Developments and Delays
Kukatpally resident Mr Abhilash Pedakotla’s driving license has been suspended for six months. On November 10, Abhilash was driving in an inebriated condition when his car (TS08FY 1069) hit a bike, killing two on the spot and injuring four.
However, there has been no development in a second accident case involving accused Kalvakuntla Krishna Milan Rao. Sources in the enforcement agency told NewsMeter that Milan’s family is not cooperating in the investigation. The family has not submitted his driving license even after repeated reminders. “The court stayed the arrest of Krishna Milan Rao not the investigation. The family has not been cooperating with the law enforcement officials,” said a senior officer.
On November 23 Krishna Milan Rao was driving on the biodiversity flyover when he lost control of the wheel due to over speeding, brushed the parapet wall and landed on the road, killing one and injuring at least six persons.
