Trio booked for assaulting bus driver, conductor
Three unidentified men were booked on Monday for allegedly assaulting the bus driver and conductor of a private bus that belongs to the Orbit transport company, in which, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal is among the majority stakeholders.
The road rage incident reportedly occurred after three men in a Safari vehicle parked their car in front of the bus as they were not allowed to overtake. Police said they then pulled conductor Gurjeet Singh and driver Surjeet Singh out of the bus and assaulted them. The incident, which went on for more than 20 minutes, disrupted the traffic on the road. The three youth allegedly also broke some of the window panes on the bus and fled after leaving their car on the road, which has a Chandigarh number. Passengers, travelling in the bus, were later shifted to other buses so as to reach the destination.
