As Mohammed entered Chandrappa’s details in his electronic device, he was taken aback to see that the bus driver had committed 66 traffic violations since May 2014. He was caught in the middle of his 67th recorded violation. Mohammed seized the bus and took Chandrappa to the station.

Police collected a fine of Rs 6,600 and sent Chandrappa’s licence to the Regional Transport office, recommending its suspension.
