The incident took place in a KSRTC bus which drives from Davangere to Bharamasagara. KSRTC’s Divisional Controller told The News Minute, a media website, “It appears a passenger on the bus has shot the video and it has come to our notice only today. We have removed the driver from duty because the safety of passengers and the quality of their journey is our first priority. We are looking into the incident because we are getting a lot of calls about this”.

While no complaint was made toward the bus driver by any passengers, he was suspended because other bus driver complained about him at KSRTC.

“We have removed the driver from duty and have asked the divisional security inspector to conduct an inquiry. He won’t be assigned any other duty till the probe is completed. He could even be suspended,” said a KSRTC official while talking to Times of India. He also said that Prakesh is an animal lover.
