Chikkaballapur: In a tragic incident near Kelagina Thotta on the outskirts of Chikkaballapur, four students lost their lives when the car they were traveling in plunged into a drainage ditch around 10:30 PM on Saturday.

The victims have been identified as Tyagore (21) from Chinthamani, Vasanth (20), and Aryan (19) from Chikkaballapur, and Pavan (20) from Hebbal, Bengaluru. They were students at various colleges in Bengaluru, traveling from Bengaluru to Chikkaballapur.
