Kota, Apr 28, 2018: In a rather queer case, a KSRTC conductor who was on duty in a bus heading towards to Gokarna pestered a Kota based photographer to buy him alcohol when the bus had halted at Kumta during night. The bus was operating on the Subrahmanya, Sullia, Gokarna route.
The photographer Arun was shocked when the conductor who gave him Rs 100 to fetch alcohol, did not budge even when he resented. Shockingly none of the other passengers, there were only five of them, as well as the bus conductor bothered much about the incident.
The conductor even gave the excuse that as he was in uniform he may get caught if he went on his own to fetch alcohol. Even a warning issued by Arun that he would complain to higher-ups proved futile. The conductor had continued harassing the photographer till the bus reached Gokarna.
As Arun had an important assignment in Gokarna, he later shared the instance on social sites and has said he would complain against the errant conductor.
