A trailer loaded with construction iron rammed this morning into Maruti Mandir at Adi Shankaracharya Marg this morning. The driver of the trailer is absconding.

Accourding to my sources – The police have checked the vehicle for any mechanical fault and have concluded that the driver either drowsed off or was drunk. The owner of the trailer has promised to pay for all the damages incurred as the entire section on the right side of the temple has collapsed. The Trailer ran up the divider and into the temple boundary.

No human lives were lost.

There were 2 people sleeping inside the temple and 2 beggars next to the temple. All escaped unhurt and one beggar was luckily saved.
