    Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.indeed heart breaking to hear a young boy lost his life in an accident. May the departed soul rest in peace. A request to the private bus owners association not to keep timings between to and fro journey of buses.Due to pressure from bus owners drivers and conductors are forced to speed up .This results into accidents. It has been noticed very many times drivers& conductors don't give enough time for passengers to board the bus or get down from the bus.Many times deaths have taken place owing to restlessness of the conductors by blowing the whistle ahead of time while passengers are boarding or getting down. Concerned RTO officials kindly have a heart while you are entrusted with a duty.

    AS far as the private bus lobby is hand in glove with the administration, nothing can be done in this Mangagala Ooru. People protest only for nonsense things like beef etc and no unity when it comes to public issues.
    RIP Harshith. Only Brahma knows how many more lives will have to be lost before any? action is taken

    I was passing by soon after this ghastly unfortunate accident. The accident scene was horrific with his body parts scattered over the road. I am still disturbed after looking at this accident .May God give strength to his family members to go through this difficult phase. Unless these private buses are banned, we will keep witnessing such accident.It is high time to bring in more government buses.
    RIP Harshith.

    Yesterday in same place another private bus was driven recklessly and was overtaking multiple vehicles at one shot. This caused all vehicles in opposite lane to go off road. A 2 wheeler in front of me almost lost balance because of this. If the public inside the bus complain and ask driver and conductor not to drive harshly they are abused and harassed by these drivers. These buses also cause lot of traffic jam by stopping wherever they wish and going very slow when there is no passengers.

    What action will the police take.. the driver will abscond, and will be released, and then the bus will run as usual.. why there is no strict action of taking away the bus permit.... its actually the mistake of driver who was overtaking... poor little guy.. so innocent looks he has got... lost his life, he will never be back.... how will the house people feel... why there is no strict action .. if really strict action is taken then no one will over take on road... what was the hurry .. where did the bus drive want to go.. and what were the people ion bus doing when he was speeding or over taking... we dumb commuters are also responsible .. we have to speak up when driver overspeeds the vehicle...

    We have to blame Bus owners Association because of this timings of bus service they kill innocent people. Our Traffic department also not taking any action. Seize the bus route and licence for atleast one month. That time put government buses on that route.
    RIP . HARSHITH SHETTY.

    Often we hear complaint about these buses overtaking, stopping in the middle of the road causing problems to other vehicles . Police phone in program it is brought to the notice of police dept. Still situation remains the same. All vehicle have to wait behind that bus which is stopped in the middle of the road to alight it's passenger. Overtaking that bus surely lead to accident during peak hours. I personally request superior police officers to look into the matter and bring this unruly behaviour of bus drivers under control.

    Book the driver and conductor both into Murder case. Put them into rigorous life imprisonment for killing the innocent youth for no fault of his.
    And why NDA Govt still doesn't pass the Bill for these type of road acciedents with strict Laws ???
    Bribing by Bus Or heavy vehicle owners to the Govt brokers' is it ???
