Hyderabad: A prominent leader of the Telugu Desam and former MP, Lal Jan Basha, was killed in a road mishap at Narket-pally in Nalgonda district on Thursday morning. Basha, 56, was going to Guntur from Hyderabad in his Innova car when the vehicle rammed into a divider on National Highway 16, near Kamineni Y junction at around 8.15 am.
While Basha died on the spot, the driver of the car was admitted to a private hospital with injuries. Police said that the car was speeding and it was raining at the time of the accident. “The speedometer was stuck after the mishap, and it showed 140 km per hour.
We suspect that the driver lost control due to speeding on the wet road,” Nalgonda sub division SDPO P. Vijaya Kumar said.Eyewitnesses said that when the car hit the divider and suddenly stopped, Basha, who was sitting on the left side, was thrown out of the vehicle and hit his head on the road.
Basha’s foot got detached in car
When the car that Telugu Desam leader and former MP Lal Jan Basha was travelling in, rammed into a divider on Thursday morning, the iron crash barrier on the divider pierced the vehicle and cut Basha’s right leg.
“His foot got detached and was stuck inside the vehicle while his body was thrown out,” Kumar said. The airbags of the Innova (registration No. AP 15 AM 789) inflated properly. Police suspect that Basha was not wearing a seat-belt at the time of the accident. Police say the driver was not seriously injured as he was wearing a seat-belt.
Police has booked a case against driver Muzaffar Iqbal for causing death due to negligence (IPC Section 304 A) following a complaint from Basha’s son Gayaz Basha.
The driver is believed to have come late to pick up the TD leader and drove fast to reach the destination on time. “Since the journey was delayed, the driver must have driven a little faster,” said TD city minority cell president Shahbas Khan.
Incidentally, many TD leaders like former Lok Sabha Speaker G.M.C. Balayogi, former MP K. Yerrannaidu have died in accidents.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
