New Delhi: A government-run Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus driver has been suspended, the conductor served a show-cause notice and the bus marshal sent to Civil Defence Office after a viral video showed them with a girl dancing to a Haryanavi song inside the bus on July 12.
The staff of Hari Nagar Depot bus, including it’s driver, conductor and marshal on July 12 stopped the bus near Janakpuri, where a girl suspected to be friends with them performed her dance whose video had gone viral on social media, said a senior DTC officer.
He said the conductor is a contractual employee so he has been served a show-cause notice for termination while the bus marshal has been repatriated to his parent department.
The accused allegedly “misused” the DTC bus in using it unauthorisedly for shooting video, negligence of duty, misuse of government property as also “maligning” image of the public transporter, the officer reportedly said.
Earlier this month, the J&K Police had taken note of a viral video that showed a schoolboy in Kupwara being threatened of assault by an axe-wielding teacher.
It said, “A video was found circulating on social media, in which a young boy is seemingly held to the ground by a male, who is holding an axe in another hand and threatening to assault him with it. It seems the incident took place at Future Education Institute Wagahat Magam.”
Assuring the public of action, the J&K Police spokesperson had added, “Cognisance of the same has been taken, consequent to which a case has been registered in Handwara under relevant sections of law. Individuals who are believed to have knowledge about the incident are being questioned. Legal action has been initiated.”
