Two students and a teacher were injured, and several vehicles were damaged when a car belonging to an English professor crashed into vehicles at the parking lot of the Maharani College campus on Saturday. The injured students, Ashwini and Nandapriya, both 19-year-old studying in first-year B.Com., and the music teacher, Jyothi, were being treated for injuries in a hospital.

The incident occurred when the professor, Nagaraj, was trying to park his car. While reversing, he reportedly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. He sustained a minor injury and was treated before being arrested and released on bail. He has been booked for rash and negligent driving. The vehicle has been seized.
