On International women’s day, an incident was observed in the Bakshi Nagar area of the Akhnoor Road where a fight broke out among two girls and the bus conductor. The reason behind the fight was the bus fare. Actually some girls boarded the bus from somewhere near Akhnoor region and they were supposed to be dropped off at Bakshi Nagar but as soon as the bus driver reached the Pawan Fruit Ice-cream, he asked the girls to get down. The students demanded to return the bus fare whereas the bus conductor refused for it. The girls staged a protest and caught the bus driver until police arrived.
Later, the police flying squad reached to the spot and booked the bus conductor and a fine was charged from him. The S.H.O of the Bakshi Nagar Police station, Ashwin Kumar said that the unity and the courage that girls have displayed is worth the applause.
