Two young brothers lose life in accident

Published On : 24 Jul 2018

Kasargod: Two brothers lost their lives and more than ten people sustained injuries in a gruesome serial accident which happened at Adkathbail on national highway 66. The deceased were children of Chowki Arjal resident A K Rajish, Mohammed Min Haj(4) and his brother Ibrahim Shasir(7). While Min Haj passed away at a private hospital here the same night, Shasir breathed his last in a private hospital at Mangaluru

The accident occurred when Rajish was travelling on his Bullet motor bike with his two children from Kasargod to his residence. Rajish (33), who suffered injuries in the accident, is being treated at a Mangaluru hospital. Min Haj was a LKG student of Min Haj Chemnad Jamat English medium school while Ibrahim Shasir was studying at A A model school as a student of second standard.

The accident took place on national highway near Adkathbail School at 9 pm between a car that was on its way to Mangaluru, a tourist bus, two motor bikes and a car approaching from the opposite direction. The vehicles reportedly lost control when trying to avoid potholes on the road.

Potholes on national highways are causing several accidents of late. The highway stretch between the town and Talapady is filled with potholes. Accidents do happen when drivers drive haphazardly when trying to avoid hitting the potholes. As roads have often been found inundated in rain water, one cannot make out which is the road and which is pothole.
