The deceased is Lokesh (28) of Nellitheertha near Bajpe. The suspicion is that  as the road was quite slippery owing to the rain earlier in the day, Lokesh might have lost control over his bike resulting in the mishap. Lokesh, a tailor at  Ambikanagar near Sunkadakatte was on way home when tragedy struck. His family had made a frantic search for him all through the night but of no avail.

Lokesh has left behind his mother Lalitha, apart from  three brothers and three sisters. A  large number of people had gathered at the scene of the mishap. The body of Lokesh as well as his bike were retrieved  from the river.

A case has been registered in the local police station.
