A college student in Bengaluru was locked for distressing 45 minutes in a bus. She posted the video on Facebook which was later debarred.
“I began to feel a sense of panic, so I tried to kick the glass open, but it didn’t work, then I tried to get out throughout the Emergency Door, but that was ‘JAMMED SHUT’. I screamed for what was 45 minutes, but nobody would let me out, instead the driver reached in from the window and grabbed the key and tried hard”, she said.
The student’s north eastern friend had a fight with the conductor and began to abuse him for standing with her.
Before I knew that the bus was empty and the people were standing outside the bus, the conducted decide to lock me in the bus.
When I ordered him to release me he refused and the police said he would not open the bus till my friend arrives at the police station. I was furious and started screaming at them and the passerby no the street, but no one wanted to help. I was shocked how this was all taking place in the presence of police, outside a police station, on the main road.”
The door was opened after almost an hour when the friend arrived at the police station, alleges the woman.
