Mhow (Madhya Pradesh): A number of school buses are being operated in the town and its surrounding areas like Kishanganj Badgonda and Manpur. But there is a lack of supervision regarding their fitness. The transport department and the police who are tasked with checking the roadworthiness of these buses merely indulge in formality and there is no serious effort on the part of the administration to check their fitness. This could lead to a serious accident endangering the lives of students.
On Friday, a boy was injured when a school bus of Vindhyachal Junior College on Mhow Manpur Road overturned in the field, and the driver got hurt. Badgonda Police registered a case under Sections 279 and 337 of the Indian Penal Code on the bus owner along with the driver of the bus, the school operator, and the school supervisor
