Ayazuddin was riding a Suzuki GSX R1000 sportsbike with his cousin riding pillion. The 19-year-old went on an early morning ride with 16-year-old Ajmal on Hyderabad's Ring Road where the motorcycle lost control. The younger boy, who was the son of Azhar's sister and grandson of former MP Khaleel-ur-Rahman, was declared dead at the hospital.
no mention of whether they were wearing helmets or not.
The incident occurred between 9 am and 9.15 AM when the duo were riding on the bike from Shamshabad area to Gachibowli leading to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, a senior police officer told PTI. The road is prohibited for two-wheelers and auto-rickshaws."It seems they were testing the new bike which was apparently driven at a high-speed," he said. The mishap occurred when the brakes were applied near a toll gate structure under Narsingi Police station limits. Ayazuddin lost control and the skidded off the road and both of them hit the ground, he said. The duo was shifted to Apollo hospital in Jubillee Hills area in an unconscious state around 9.30 AM with the help of locals and police.
Azhar's son was wearing one. It was shown at the scene of accident. His friend / cousin apparently wasn't. From the pictures, the bike wasn't damaged a lot, so the thing about 'losing control' sounds a bit odd. Reports say they were travelling in excess of 100 kmph.
