The Hush Post: An alert bus driver’s presence of mind and his driving skills today saved the lives of 50 passengers passengers bound for Chintpurni in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh from Jagraon in Ludhiana.

On Monday morning, as the Punjab Roadways bus veered through the Gagaret market on way to Chintpurni, the driver realised that the brakes were not functioning when he applied force on the brake paddle. He immediately swerved the steering wheel taking the bus towards a drain on one side of the road, the wheel of the bus got stuck in it and the bus stopped. There was traffic on the road due to heavy rush because of the navratras.
