A Bike rider was arrested in connection with a road accident that claimed the life of a woman in Tripunithura here on Thursday. Vishnu, a Kanjiramattom native, was nabbed by Tripunithura police in the death of Kavya Dhanesh, a Piravom native who worked as a senior executive at Synergy Oceanic Services in Kochi.
The accident took place at around 9:30 am near SN Junction in Thirpunithura. According to police, Vishnu’s bike overtook Kavya’s scooter from the left side and swiftly crossed her to the right to take a U-turn.
She lost her balance and fell on the road. A speeding bus crushed her to death on the spot. According to police, Vishnu was earlier involved in a similar case, which resulted in the death of a cyclist in June 2020.
