In a shocking incident in Chennai, an 18-year-old girl driving an Audi car, allegedly ran over a 68-year-old security guard on September 2 (Wednesday) night and went off to sleep at home without noticing what she had done.
The teenager, identified as Aparna, was trying to park her Audi car in the parking lot of her apartment complex at Foreshore Estate in Santhome, Chennai at around 10 pm.
The deceased, D Sivaprakasam, a resident of Mandaveli and a retired government servant, had started working as a security guard only a week back at the complex. As per reports, unaware of the incident, Aparna, who is the daughter of a real-estate agent, said that she did not notice running over the security guard until Police presented her with CCTV footage of the incident the next morning.
At around 11:30 pm, after the incident, some residents of the complex on North Leith Castle Street, while entering the building, discovered that the gate was already open.
They went in search of Sivaprakasam and found him lying in a pool of blood. The residents, then, immediately alerted the Foreshore Estate Police Station.
The police went through the CCTV footage and found out that an Audi car had run over the 68-year-old guard, who was sleeping in the parking lot, at around 10 pm.
Police reportedly said that the teenager did not hear any cries and also did not notice that she had run over Sivaprakasam, who as at the time, asleep with a bed sheet over him, adding that she had a valid driving license. The woman was trying to climb an incline before entering the parking lot and the man may not have been visible as her car lights were switched off, a police officer informed TOI.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
