    The deceased has been identified as Kavita, who was a garment worker and was riding pillion with her elder sister Vijayalakshmi. The incident happened at around 5:30 pm on Tuesday in Devanahalli close to Vishwanathapura police station.

    According to the police, while trying to negotiate a pothole, Vijayalakshmi slowed down the two-wheeler when a truck hit them from behind. As the women fell off their vehicle, the truck ran over Kavita, killing her instantaneously.
