(PTI)A total of 120 people were packed inside the 40 to 50-seater bus with another 100 on the roof. That was the account the police in Kanpur’s Naubasta area heard on Saturday night when they stopped the private bus to ask why it was flouting the lockdown. Sources said that while state government buses ferried the workers home free of charge, private buses were also drafted in while being allowed to charge fees. There were 120 passengers inside and about 100 on the roof.”Those inside the bus were taking turns sitting on one another’s laps. It appears the buses ferrying the migrants — at least the private buses — were not following any rational division of the routes.
