A student of Class 8 was crushed to death by a car while on her way to school in a Karnataka village of Belagavi district, just 14 days after she requested the local MLA to provide transport facilities for students in the area.
Angry and devastated family members of the teenager, her friends and villagers blocked the road in protest against the government's insensitivity and lack of transport facilities.
The victim, Akkavva Hoolikatti, died after coming under the car in Shivanoor village on Sunday.
Akkavva had submitted a letter to Kittur MLA Doddagoudar Mahantesh requesting transport facilities two weeks back to which the minister allegedly failed to respond.
