Past Instances of Road Rage

On August 27, a minor road rage incident led to the murder of a 21-year-old youth and left his friend with critical stab injuries, when a group of suspected drug addicts attacked them with weapons at a bakery in Wilson Garden.

Karthik and his friend Avinash had seen two men on a bike, which was moving in the wrong direction on a one-way street. They reprimanded the biker for breaking the rules. A few hours later, a group of men came in an auto rickshaw and stabbed Karthik to death while Avinash sustained grievous injuries.

In August 2016, in another incident of road rage, a 33-year-old Major in the Indian Army was pulled out of his vehicle and brutally assaulted by an auto driver and four others near the SCT Institute of Technology on Kaggadasapura Main Road. A techie intervened and helped the major, who survived the brutal attack.
