Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) air-conditioned bus service between Ahmedabad and Dahod’s conductor aboard was found dunkon duty. The conductor, who was inebriated, was made to get down at Godhra as a video of his went viral. The conductor Nilesh Vaghela, a resident of Sanand, was on the bus ever since it left Ahmedabad. Such was his situation that he did not remember how to issue ticket and at times approached passengers who had already been given tickets. He did not collect fare from some.
The situation continued for quite some time and the video even shows a youth reprimanding the conductor and asking him to go and sleep on seat at the behind if he was not in his senses. The conductor is also seen unable to bring out a ticket and at this a passenger pointed out that there was no paper roll in the device used to issue tickets.
A GSRTC official said that the video went viral and some senior officials of the corporation also came to know of it. GSRTC staffers at Godhra made the conductor get down there and handed him over to the police on Wednesday evening. An offence was registered against the conductor, officials said, adding that departmental action would also be taken against him.
