Around 40 students, on their way home from school, were stranded inside their school bus for over an hour in Kadubisanahalli after their driver got involved in a road rage incident on Wednesday. 

According to the police, the incident occurred around 12.30 pm near the New Horizon Gurukul School when the bus brushed against an auto-rickshaw on the busy Outer Ring Road behind New Horizon College of Engineering.

The school bus driver, Suresh K (35), alleged that there was busy traffic on the road and the auto-rickshaw driver, Praveen Kumar (33), picked up a quarrel with him for not moving the bus front. He then opened the bus driver’s door and pulling him down started beating him up with a cane, Suresh told DH.

Meanwhile, the school students along with a woman attendant Uma Rani started to panic. Four supervisors from the school rushed to Suresh’s help, but Praveen was adamant that the bus along with the students stay there until the police come.

When the bus went to an apartment nearby, the auto-driver followed it and stopped it inside the apartment premise. Eventually, the school had to arrange for another bus and a driver to ferry the students home. Praveen Kumar alleged that it was the bus driver’s mistake as he brushed against his vehicle and he was using the children as an excuse to escape from the spot. 

Suresh said that parents were worried and were calling the attendant to inquire about their children. The Marathahalli police have registered complaints from both the parties and registered two FIRs against each of them. They are investigating further.
