Karunaa Sagar: Car enthusiast, entrepreneur trained abroad, killed in accident
Karunaa Sagar, the son of DMK employee Hosur MLA Praksh Y, who died with six others in the Koramangala traffic accident, was, according to his social media profiles, “an entrepreneur by profession, a passionate driver”.
According to his social media accounts, he ran a company that sells corrugated boxes for packaging solutions. But his real passion was cars.
His social media feeds show him driving a variety of luxury cars and bikes, often with friends and married sister Sindhu Prakash who lives in Bengaluru.
Among the luxury motorcycles Sagar rides are a Ducati Panigale 955 (approximate cost Rs 15 lakh), a Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 (cost around Rs 14 lakh) and a Royal Enfield.
More than a year ago he took one of the motorcycles on a road trip to Ooty.
Just five days ago, Sagar posted videos of him on Instagram, in which he drives a Mercedes-Benz S400d, and titled them as “luxury redefined”.
