Man lies bleeding on road for 20 min; passersby click photosTIMES NEWS NETWORK
Bengaluru: A 34-year-old scooterist, who was hit by a truck on Tuesday morning, lay at Nayandahalli Junction on Mysuru Road with one leg crushed and another fractured for 20 minutes. Passersby were busy clicking videos on their mobile phones instead of helping him take to hospital.
Finally, Somasundar, a police constable attached with Byatarayanapura traffic police, who was deployed near the junction, rushed to the injured man’s rescue, flagged down a car and took him to Fortis Hospital in Nagarabhavi. Doctors had to amputate the left leg of Madan Lal, a resident of Panchasheela Layout near
Rajarajeshwari Nagar, and employee of a hardware shop. He may lose his other leg too, doctors said. Madan Lal was on his way to work on his scooter when a truck hit him at 9.30am.
Madan Lal fell and both his legs came under the truck’s wheels. But the truck driver sped away.
“None came forward to help him. They were busy videographing the incident as he was writhing in pain,” a police officer said.
A case has been registered against the truck driver, who is absconding. “Doctors said he may lose his right leg too as its main nerves have been damaged. We have requested them to wait for 24 hours to see if his condition improves,” said Uday Ram, Madan Lal’s relative.

Nikkhil Advani: Have NOC To Do Film On Batla House Encounter
Director Nikkhil Advani Says He Has Been Doing Research On The Subject Of Batla House For Four Years And Has NOC From Everybody
Director Nikkhil Advani says he has acquired all the necessary permissions for his film on the Batla House encounter that will go on floors in September. The encounter occurred in September 2008 against Indian Mujahideen terrorists in the Batla House, a locality in Jamia Nagar in Delhi. As per reports, two suspected terrorists were gunned down and two other suspects were arrested, while one accused escaped that day. Encounter specialist and Delhi Police officer Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the police action, was shot dead during the incident.
“We have touched upon real-life incidents earlier with films like ‘Lucknow Central’ and ‘Airlift’. We have been doing research on the subject of ‘Batla House’ for four years, we have NOC from everybody. It is based on the life of a police officer who was involved in the ‘Batla House’ operation,” Advani told PTI. “As a production house, we make sure that we do a thorough research so the director has all the things ready. We will start the shoot from September-October,” he added. In the film, Saif Ali Khan will portray the role of a police officer Sharma. Besides this film, Advani and Khan have also teamed up for “Baazaar”, that revolves around Indian stock market. “We are very excited about ‘Baazaar’. It will release in May this year and after that ‘Batla House’ will happen and a couple of other films,” he adds. The director-producer recently announced another film, an action-thriller starring John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee. T-Series has joined hands with Advani’s Emmay Entertainment to jointly produce this cop-saga, that will be written and directed by Milap Zaveri.
“One of the important thing as a producer for me is to bring out unusual casting. John is an action star and Manoj is an extremely good actor. When I heard the story I was excited about it. My endeavour is to choose a correct script and get an unusual yet apt casting as 50 per cent of the battle is won,” Advani says. His another home production film is “Marjaawaan”, a dark love story in the “Ek Villain” space and Advani says, the team will announce the details once everything is in place.
Asked about his directorial venture, he says, “I don’t know at this moment. I am very happy being a producer I am happy in this role. What’s more satisfying as a producer and director is making sure the filmmaker has got everything that he wanted.” Meanwhile, Advani is one of the jury members for REEL movie awards honouring artistes who have entertained audiences with their creativity through excellent storytelling. Film critic-TV host Rajeev Masand will moderate the jury panel that also has names such as Sudhir Mishra, Sujoy Ghosh and Farah Khan. The awards will be announced on March 20.

43-yr-old held for raping 9-yr-old girl
A 43-year-old man sexually abused a nine-year-old girl continuously for two weeks, scaring her into silence by threatening her. Her mother came to know of the incident on Sunday when she observed her daughter behaving in a petrified manner in the man’s presence. She filed a complaint with Nandini Layout police.
The pervert has been arrested and sent to Parappana Agrahara central jail. The accused reportedly threatened the girl with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone else, police said.
The woman and the child had gone to a temple near their house on Sunday. A man staying in the same area, identified as Pothlaiah, was also in the temple. He got into a conversation with the girl’s mother. The mother noticed that while Pothlaiah was enquiring about breakfast, her daughter ran behind the idol and was signing to her, asking her not to talk to Pothlaiah. When she noticed this, she kept a watch on her daughter’s movements.
After Pothlaiah left the place she took her daughter aside and asked her what scared her about the man. Though the child did not say anything initially, the mother took her into confidence and questioned her again. The girl then told her about Pothlaiah’s sexual assault on her.
The girl told her mother that when she used to go to the temple in the evenings, and when she was alone at home or playing outside, Pothlaiah used to visit the house, touched her inappropriately and then gagged and abused her. If he gained entry into the house, he would sexually abuse the girl. The shocked mother asked the child how long this had been going on and the child told her it has been two weeks.
The mother then brought this to the notice of her neighbours and filed a complaint with the Nandini Layout police. The police swung into action before Potlaiah could give them a slip and arrested him. The girl and Potlaiah were subjected to medical tests. He has been booked under POCSO Act and IPC section 376- Rape.
Potlaiah is a labourer staying in the same area as the girl and the mother. The girl’s father had passed away a few years earlier.
