'Mode of transport beside the point'
The mode of transportation of accompanists is entirely beside the point at
hand. IIT-K invited the band because Remo is a popular artist, and not because they know or care about the accompanists.
For all they know, Remo might be changing his accompanists after every concert.
I believe what Remo did for his accompanists immediately after the accident
and after their sad demise is relevant and not the mode of transportation he
provides to his accompanists.
If Remo did not get back to help in the formalities in a situation like this, and did not help the families of the deceased, he should be blamed.
Institutions like IIT-K, and the administration and faculty, have a certain pull, which may be useful in getting formalities cleared. As the organisers of the concert, they should have had the decency to be available and provide all the help required in the situation.
