BENGALURU: Performing wheelies on the busy Doddaballapura-Yelahanka Road cost two youths their life. They died instantly after their bike hit a JCB machine from behind on Tuesday evening.
The deceased are Syed Idayath, 20, a car mechanic and Arbaz, 22, a welding shop owner, both from Triveni Road, Yeshwantpur. According to Doddaballapura Rural police, the incident took place around 4.30pm, near Country Club, Marasandra. Arbaz was riding his altered Yamaha RX-100 bike and Idayath was on the pillion. Arbaz was doing a wheelie and lost control of the bike, which hit a JCB moving towards Yelahanka, from behind.
“The impact was huge. The fuel tanker got separated from the bike and the front wheel and handle were completely damaged. The riders fell on the road along with the bike and sustained severe head injuries. It led to their instant death,” a police officer said.
The public alerted Doddaballapura Rural police about the accident. Police rushed to the spot and shifted the bodies to the government hospital, Doddaballapura for postmortem, which will be held on Wednesday morning.
Police seized the bike and the JCB for further investigation. “I was riding towards Doddaballapura and saw two men on a bike doing stunts. The front wheel was in the air and within no time, they crashed into the JCB,” Venkatesh, an eyewitness, told TOI.

Friends and relatives of the youths rushed to Doddaballapura soon after they heard about the accident. According to Siddique, younger brother of Idayath, the duo had gone to Doddaballapura in the afternoon to meet Arbaz’s girlfriend. “Arbaz asked my brother to accompany him to Doddaballapura. I think they might have been returning after meeting Arbaz’s girlfriend. Idayath was one of my three elder brothers,” said Siddique.
