The car that the students were travelling in went out of the control of its driver and crashed into a tree on the outskirts of the city, police said. The accident took place around 5.15 am while the students were returning home after celebrating Krishnan’s birthday at his house on the Anekal-Chandapura road. Krishnan who was dropping his friends home was in an inebriated state and was driving in a rash and negligent manner, police said.

“He lost control of the car, entered a wrong lane and rammed into a tree. The victims Druva and Aswhin were sitting on the left side of the car. The impact of the crash killed them at the spot,” a police officer said.

Police are yet to trace the owner of the Rajasthan registered car that was being used by the students.
