Condemning the continued rise in the death toll due to ‘killer buses’ owned by Badals and their close confidants, AAP today demanded immediate ban on these “Killer Buses”.Today two more persons were killed by the buses owned by Akalis including of Badal families. While a 53 year-old cart puller was crushed to death on Abohar-Malout road by a bus of “Dabwali Bus Service” owned by Badal family, a 40 year-old cyclist was killed in Bathinda by a bus owned by Akali leader and close confidant of Badals Hardeep Singh alias Dimpy Dhillon, said senior Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Himmat Singh Shergil. It is pertinent to mention here that this is the third death within a month due to “Killer Bus Service” owned by Dhillon, Shergil said.
Earlier on February 5, a 27-year-old Dalit man was crushed at Gidderbaha-Muktsar road, followed by death of a 14 year girl in Channu village and a 10 year old dalit girl in Ferozepur by the same “Killer Bus Service” on December 12 and 17 respectively, Shergil said adding, had stern action would have been taken against the erring drivers, such minors could have saved. The high-headedness of Badals could be evident from the fact that even after the molestation and death of a minor dalit girl in Moga by Badals’ owned Orbit Transport, no justice was delivered to victim’s family till today, he added.
