Andhra Pradesh Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister Dr P Narayana’s son Nishith Narayana, 23, and his friend were killed when their SUV crashed into a metro rail pillar in Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad in the early hours of Wednesday. Police said that it was a very high-speed crash as the front portion of the white Mercedes Benz SUV crumbled due to the impact and even though the airbags deployed they were of no use. Nishith Narayana was recently appointed as a director in the family-run Narayana Group of Educational Institutions.

Nishith and his friend Raja Ravi Chandra apparently went out for a late night ride after heavy showers accompanied by high speed winds lashed the city. The duo were stuck for some time at a friend’s house and waited till the waterlogging cleared before setting out again. Police said that the mishap occurred near a bend on Jubilee Hills 36 between Peddamma temple and Madhapur where the SUV rammed into pillar number 9. It is not known who was driving at the time of the mishap and whether the duo had consumed liquor, and police are also investigating if the late night storm caused the accident.

The car in which Narayana was travelling in.

“A watchman sleeping nearby told us that he woke up when he heard a big noise between 2 -2:30 am and found that the SUV had hit the pillar. The car must have been travelling at high speed because due to the impact, chips of concrete came off the solid metro rail pillar,” a police official said.

The duo were extricated from the mangled remains of the SUV and rushed Apollo Hospital where they were declared dead on arrival. Dr P Narayana who is on an official tour in London is rushing back. Telugu Desam Party leaders in the city and Narayana’s Cabinet colleagues in Vijayawada are rushing to the city.

Reacting to the incident, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu expressed his condolences. “Deeply saddened to hear about the sudden demise of Narayana garu’s son Nishith. My heartfelt condolences with his family in this dark hour,” he tweeted.

TRS Minister K Taraka Rama Rao also shared his condolences. “My deepest condolences to Dr. Narayana & family, AP Municipal Admin Minister who lost his son in an accident in Hyderabad today. RIP Nishith,” KTR tweeted.

A freak storm caused havoc in Hyderabad, parts of Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh late last night. High speed winds reaching up to 100 kms per hour tore through Hyderabad, uprooting trees and billboards while heavy showers caused inundation all over the city which was caught unawares. Hundreds of vehicles were damaged as uprooted trees fell on them. Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation officials said that as electricity was quickly disconnected it averted mishaps as power lines snapped and fell on the roads.

      Govt changes. Ego& roads never improve When KCR took over as CM of telangana, he blamed previous Govt for the pathetic state of roads in Hyd. He disma at the knee deep water logging at Raj bhavan road for a 15 minutes rain. He will change the scene by repairing roads. 3 yrs rule is passed, but no improvement. when he steps down as CM after 2yrs, situation may not improve for sure. Stop registration of high speed accident prone cars on roads.If minister's son is driver, no alcohol. only engine design is blamed. If others drive , it will take 5 days to say( Nandigama Bus accident), alcohol was consumed or not. why?. If CAR hits pedestrian, police declare it as unknown driver/ vehicle. When ever common man dies in accident, Brain dead and awareness campaign is taken up for organ donation. Why? People see media takes double standards to air the news as per money& power background of the person, who dies in accidents. Control on high speed vehicles must be made by Govt/traffic polic

        SC bans , registration of BS-III vehicles from April 1 A Rich father says he doesn't know at what speed his son drives a car. More than 4 times, Son was fined by traffic police in Hyd. Licence was not cancelled. Do we need 2.5 crore and 2500cc cars on indian roads. Benz company says how the driver is dead. Instead they should think about - had it hit people instead metro pillar? Police will save the driver by saying (i) F I R was lodged 2 days back as missing from garrage (2) Even though, car belongs to minister, who was the actual driver- it has to be investigated. (3) Judges will comment - 'The dead is dead. You can not bring back. A young man can not be denied another opportunity for bright future. He must not be punished. To err is human, to forgive is divine. (4) no witness is found(5) witness narration is not reliable (Salman Khan case)SC must ban all such luxurious cars first for being accident prone vehicle. Forget about pollution-it's Fatal to common slow people on roa
