The bus belonging to the Mattakkuliya Bus Depot had hit a culvert and the foot board had broken off at that moment and the Conductor of the bus and another person who were standing on the foot board died.

Subsequent to this accident that occurred yesterday morning, the driver of the bus was taken into custody by the Police and produced before the Mawanella Magistrate’s Court. He was then remanded until today.

Some buses belonging to the SLTB are very old and Operations Director of the SLTB P. H. R. T. Chandrasiri said that at night drunken individuals tend to travel on footboards.

He said further that instructions have been given to bus conductors and drivers that action should be taken against such persons.
