Five foreign students suspected of drunk driving narrowly escaped near death when the driver lost control and the vehicle turned near Kempegowda International Airport on Friday.

The Sudanese nationals were students at a city college and resided at Kammanahalli. Locals rescued them and admitted them to a nearby hospital, but the students got themselves discharged without intimating police.

Police have recovered the vehicle and identified two of the students as Almuz Omer, 21, and Esra, 21.
