Earlier last week, four people died in Bengaluru in accidents caused by the potholes.
A day after the Chief Minister instructed Bengaluru Development Minister K.J. George, local MLAs and the city's municipal corporation to fill all 16,000 potholes dotting Bangalore's roads within 15 days, a 21-year-old woman became the fourth victim of accidents caused by craters.
All the accidents have happened on arterial roads, including a state highway.
The woman died after allegedly ramming her bike into a lorry in Bengaluru's Devanahalli.
She was trying to avoid a pothole, which led to the accident.
On October 2, a couple were run over by a bus when the husband, Anthony Joseph, 55, tried to negotiate a pothole on the Mysore Road flyover.
He and his wife Sagai Mary, 53, died on the spot.
Earlier on Thursday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) marched to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) office demanding action against road department officials.
