Accident victim dies in hospital

Kurnool, Nov 12, 2012:
An unfortunate incident took place on Monday during Maro Praja Prasthanam of
Sharmila who is doing Padayatra on behalf of YSR Congress Party chief Y.S.
Jagan Mohan Reddy.

A 65-year old woman by
name Ayyamma was grievously injured when she came under a vehicle which was
following Sharmila who began the Padayatra from Chiramanu Doddi in Kurnool
district around 10.30 am. Ayyamma later died in a hospital.

Soon after the
accident, the old woman was immediately taken to Adoni hospital first but was
later shifted to Kurnool hospital as her condition became serious.
Unfortunately, she had succumbed to the injuries.

The accident occurred
half a kilometer from Chiramanu Doddi on the main road when a group of women
followed Sharmila and competed to see and talk to her. In the melee, the frail
woman came under a private vehicle.

Aghast at the incident,
Sharmila stopped her Padayatra and tried to speak to the woman but on observing
the grievous injuries sustained by the old woman, she immediately asked the
accompanying leaders and a doctor to take the victim to the hospital in the
party ambulance which has been part of the Padayatra.

Sharmila has regretted
the incident and conveyed her condolences over the death of the old woman. “It
is very unfortunate that the incident has happened,” Sharmila said.
