Anthony Joseph, 55, and his wife Sagai Mary, 52, were on their way home on their scooter with their six-year-old granddaughter from St Johns Hospital, where they had taken her as she was running a fever.
On Mysuru Road flyover, Mr Joseph applied sudden brakes on seeing a huge pothole and lost control of the two-wheeler.
After the accident, the opposition BJP in Karnataka criticised the government for allegedly not improving the roads in the state. BJP leader NR Ramesh alleged there was a large-scale "road repair scam" in the Congress-ruled municipal agency Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike.
