In a road accident near Rani Channamma University, a Deer was hit by a vehicle while it was trying to cross over and efforts to save it went in vain.
Eyewitnesses said that the animal was trying to cross the road to move to a nearby grassland when it was hit by a car near the cross of Rani Channamma University near Bhootaramanhatti.
The students and passersby tried to save the animal but all their efforts went in vain and it died in an hour.
The car which hit the deer did not stop.
The Union Forest Ministry asked the State government to shift all university offices out of Bhootaramana Hatti forest, demolish the buildings and construct the vice-chancellor’s office and other buildings elsewhere in Belagavi.
