In this case, the scene of the student falling down from the bus was recorded by a person behind the bus on his cell phone. This video footage is currently being shared rapidly on social media.
In this regard, the villagers of the area said: “Only one government bus track number 19 is plying between Seyyur and Achirupakkam in the morning and evening. More than 200 school students have to travel by bus from this area. However, as only one bus with the above track number is operated, the students are going to school risking their lives by hanging on the steps of the bus as they have to go to school on time. The above incident also happened in this way. Fortunately, the student survived. The government should understand the mood of the parents who see this scene. At the very least, the transport department authorities should take steps to run additional buses during school hours for the benefit of school students,” he said.
