The conductor of an Uttar Pradesh State Transport bus allegedly asked a woman to get off the bus after her husband died in the middle of the journey.
The couple was travelling from Bahraich to Lucknow to visit their relatives when the man's health deteriorated and he suddenly died. The woman alleged that she was dropped near Barabanki's Ramnagar crossing and was asked to take the body.
The conductor of the bus allegedly asked the woman to de-board the bus and even snatched away her journey ticket to erase any proof.
Some people around the area noted the bus number - UP 40T 5510 - as it sped off.
"The issue was not in my knowledge but has now been brought to my attention. We will investigate the issue and take appropriate action against the driver and the conductor," Barabanki depot in-charge Manoj Kumar said.
