16 lives, countless dreams
9 Janga Yadaiah, 24, driver
Yadaiah and two other friends had gone to Dilsukhnagar, probably to watch a movie, said his uncle G Rathnam. "When he suffered injuries and was taken to a hospital the staff there found his ID card and called his sister. She informed us and we searched for him. We found him on Friday around 4 am but were able to collect the body only in the afternoon because the police delayed the process," Rathnam said.
