Mangaluru, Feb 28, 2015:  The very serious accident at Nanthoor cross  on the evening of  February 27, took three lives.  One of them was Preetham Pinto.  His relatives, along with locals and some community members  gathered at the accident spot and staged a protest, a few hours after the accident.

Preetham Pinto (21) riding a bike, and  Veena (40) and her daughter Nitisha (13) in an Alto car, died after a tipper went out of control reportedly due to brake failure and rammed into an electricity pole near Nanthoor circle before crashing into the Alto car, which in turn hit Preetham’s bike.

Just within hours after Preetham succumbed to injuries, his cousin, said to be member of a community  Academy, along with Academy president Roy Castelino and others gathered near Nanthoor junction and held a  protest.

The understandable issue was despite serious accidents at Nanthoor circle, the authorities had failed to take any suitable measures to set right the problem.  It is reported that there is no proper system or enough police personnel to monitor the traffic at this junction. The group demanded that the lorry driver be arrested without delay.   They also demanded that the DCP visit the spot  and give assurance before the the protest was ended.   Local residents supported and joined the protest  and they blocked traffic for sometime.  The Kadri police arrived  at Nanthoor and failed to assure the protesters.

The situation got out of control, the reserve special police team was called into action and the police resorted to  baton charge to disperse the crowd  which was scattered.  The police said that though a protest was the right of the public, the  public inconvenience caused  by blocking the traffic was incorrect and they had to resort to remedial action.
