Bantwal, 23 Jun: Four persons have been arrested by Vittal police in connection to assaulting and abusing a KSRTC bus driver at Mani Junction of Mani village near here. The victim is identified as Chandrashekhar (47), driver of KSRTC bus, bearing registration number KA 19 F 3450.



The KSRTC bus was plying from Kundapur to Mysuru via B C Road and as it reached Mani Junction of Mani village at around 12.20 pm, three people overtook the bus and stopped their two-wheeler in front of the bus.
