    My deep condolences to the family of kid.
    Such accidents are only because of Owners... They dont have two drivers for the night trip... Even if the drivers request for the second driver the owners doesnt listen to them. I know many bus drivers of mangalore bangalore. and everyone says this. Because of job security they keep quiet. Action should be taken against the owners if such incidents took place and whenever there's only one driver. Not only sugama the biggest bus corporation Durgmaba also do the same thing and even they are bus met into accident near kunigal few months back and luckily no serious injury happened to the people...
