    Horrible sad.Conductor and driver too are hurrying to start the bus as soon as a person hardly set a leg inside bus or hardly set foot out.Thsi should be banned.They always let passenger hardly out ,saying bega bega ,(Fast fast)Looks like passenger must be very sportive even elder one .6+When other bus is seen ,then it is like running race.Mostly it is conductors fault.to get more passengers.Sad here passengers died.Maytheir soul rest in peace.Hope other conductors learn from this.Heatfelt sympathies to their families.
