Today, August 29, a road accident in Nalgonda, 100 km from Hyderabad, claimed the life of Nandamuri Harikrishna, the son of former Andhra Pradesh CM NT Rama Rao. N Harikrishna, 61, was a former parliamentarian, a member of the TDP politburo and an actor. He was the brother-in-law of current Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu and the father of popular Tollywood actors Junior NTR and Nandamuri Kalyanram.

Reportedly, Harikrishna was driving the car himself, at high speed, with three passengers. The passengers survived with injuries but the actor-politician succumbed to his chest and head wounds. The Nalgonda superintendent of police AV Ranganath said that he was thrown out of the car after impact as he was not wearing a seat belt, as reported by NDTV.



Yesterday, the vice-president of BJP Thane, Gurunath Waman Lasne died after his car was hit by a vehicle which lost balance after hitting a pothole in Bhiwandi, Maharashtra.


Road Fatalities in India

In the government report, ‘Road Accidents in India 2016’, released by Nitin Gadkari, the official statistics say that in 2016 alone, 1.51 lakh people died in 4.81 lakh accidents. There was a death every 3.5 minutes on Indian roads in 2016. However, the number of accidents declined by 4.1% from 2015.

The concerning part is that the fatalities are increasing, and Indian roads have one of the highest rates of fatalities in the world already. In 2016, the accidents caused by the driver’s fault increased to 84% with overspeeding being the main reason.


What to do if you witness an accident?

If you ever witness an accident, do not be scared to help your fellow citizen. Always carry the print out of the Good Samaritan law with you and if the police, hospital or any other official question you, you can show them the Supreme Court guidelines and help the victim without any fear of facing harassment or punishment.
