Bangalore: Rain claimed four lives in the city since Friday.

An unidentified man was washed away in the Vrishabavathi river in Pattangere City Municipal Corporation limits, off Mysore Road, on Friday night. He was walking along the bridge, before he was washed away in the swift current, residents who saw him in the light of a oncoming motorcycle’s headlamps said.

Another body of a man, aged around 40 years, was found in a open drain in Chamarajpet’s Rudrappa Garden on Saturday morning. The police are yet to ascertain the identity of the person. In S.R. Nagar area, a woman identified as Devamma died after water gushed into her house on Friday night. She was unwell and probably could not escape the rush of water.

The rain also meant that the roads were wet and slippery, leading to several accidents. A 28-year-old unidentified motorist died after he lost control over his vehicle and collided with a tempo in Seshadripuram on Friday night.
