On 12 June 2021, Sanchari Vijay was riding pillion with his friend Naveen at 11:45 p.m. amid the COVID-induced lockdown to fetch medicines. The bike skidded and hit a light pole in JP Nagar, Bengaluru. The actor sustained severe injuries in the right portion of the brain from the accident while his friend Naveen fractured his leg.
Vijay was operated on at the Apollo hospital in the city. An emergency brain surgery was performed on him to remove the blood clot, but he could not be saved. A case has been registered against Naveen.
“Doctors have informed us that his brain stem has failed and the possibilities of him reviving are very slim. As you all know, he always worked for the betterment of society. He even worked round the clock on the relief efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic. So, we have decided to donate his organs. We believe that it will bring him peace. He will continue to help society even in death. Thanks to everyone who tried to do their best to help him,” Vijay’s brother said.
