Transport Minister pays tribute to the body of a driver who was attacked by a passenger

Transport Minister Sivashankar has paid tribute to the body of a driver who was killed in a bus accident near Madurantakam.

A drunkard boarded a government bus from Coimbatore to Villupuram at Madurantakam Bypass Bus Stand yesterday. Bus operator Perumal has asked him for a ticket. “I can’t get the ticket,” said the drunkard to the conductor. An altercation broke out between the two and the argument turned into a scuffle. The conductor fainted in the attack. Knowing this, the passenger jumped off the bus and fled the Ayyanar temple area next to Madurantakam in Chengalpattu district. Thereafter, the conductor Perumal 54 was taken to Melmaruvathur hospital for treatment. But on the way he was declared brought dead and the doctor who examined him said that he was already dead.
