Bengaluru: In what could be trouble brewing for the Karnataka revenue minister R Ashok, the Congress has alleged that his son was involved in a car accident that killed two people in Ballari district of north Karnataka. The car crash took place on February 10 (Monday) in Mariammanahalli village near Hospet.
At around 3 pm, the speeding red Mercedes Benz car rammed a tea stall near the road and hit 15-year-old Ravi Naik after which he was dragged for about 100 meters. He died on the spot. Another passenger in the car, Sachin, also lost his life in the accident.
The Congress has alleged that a conspiracy is brewing as the FIR doesn’t mention R Ashoka’s son’s name. Taking to Twitter, Congress wrote, “There is huge conspiracy to protect R.Ashoka's son in Bellary accident. Police giving a clean chit to him even before any investigation raises eyebrows. Innocent man, killed for reckless driving of a ministers son should get justice. Police should conduct a thorough investigation.”
