BENGALURU: In a bizarre incident, the East Division night beat patrolling police handed over a 27-year-old man to the Banaswadi traffic police after he was found speeding despite the front left tyre of his car being punctured and running just on the wheel rim.

The police, who followed the car for almost 2 km, alerted the driver to stop before he hit some other vehicle. The incident occurred around 3 am on Saturday on Kammanahalli Main Road and the driver was coming from Indiranagar.

The police identified the driver as Nithin Yadav, a resident of HRBR Layout. Yadav, who was driving a MUV, was said to be unaware of the deflated tyre and still kept driving at over 120 kmph. Due to overheating, the tyre had completely come out of the rim. The police managed to make him stop the car at Muniyappa Circle.

“The driver was neither injured, nor did he hit any other vehicles. Since the road was empty, he was speeding. We suspect that after the tyre burst, he was unable to control the car and stopped after moving nearly one to one-and-a-half kilometres. The Hoysala patrolling police, who were on a night beat, noticed it and followed the car alerting the driver. The driver himself stopped the car at Muniyappa Circle,” said a police officer.

The Banaswadi traffic police subjected the driver to medical tests. After seizing his driving licence and the car, the police called his family members and sent him with them. The driver has been booked for driving under the influence of alcohol and also for rash and negligent driving. He has been let out on bail.

KATHMANDU: Nepal's aviation authority has banned pilots of an Air India flight from flying in Nepali airspace after they brought down their airplane to 15,000 feet on Friday without the permission of the Air Traffic Controller (ATC), nearly causing a mid-air collision with a Nepal Airlines flight over Kathmandu.

On Friday, before landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, the Air India plane from New Delhi, flying at an unauthorized height of 19,000 feet, suddenly fell to 15,000 feet.

This made it almost collide with a Nepal Airlines plane coming to Kathmandu from Kuala Lumpur and the accident was averted after the Nepal Airlines pilots took down their plane to 7,000 feet.

The Nepal Airlines plane was holding at a height of 15,000 feet when the plane of Air India suddenly came down to the same level. As the two came in a position of collision, an alert was automatically sounded in both cockpits and a possible fatal accident was averted, said officials at the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN).

Following the incident, the CAAN has suspended Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) of Tribhuvan International Airport involved in the traffic conflict incident from active control positions until further notice. It has also written to its Indian counterpart to take action against the Air India pilots who were involved in the incident that happened on Friday.

Jagannath Niraula, spokesperson of the Authority, said that a letter has been sent to Air India with a message to India's civil aviation authority to investigate and take action on the matter.

"We have written to investigate the incident between Air India and Nepal Airlines and take necessary action and inform the authority," he said.

On the same day also, the airport authorities in Kathmandu had sought explanations from the Air India pilots where they had admitted their mistake and apologised.

The CAAN has also set up an inquiry committee in connection with the incident, said Niruala.
