A computer engineer, Sri Krishna (36) cherished hopes of starting his own business and had recently moved to Hyderabad. The Chitradurga native had come to Bangalore, a city where he once worked, to discuss his venture, and was returning to Hyderabad in the ill-fated bus. A close associate, who had seen him off at Anand Rao Circle, where he boarded the bus, said Sri Krishna’s body was identified by his wife Rashmi after seeing his wedding ring.

Sri Krishna’s father Naganna, who is in his seventies and the State president of the Kadu Gollara Sangha, has left for Hyderabad. His sister Meena is in shock and has reportedly been hospitalised.
