A 55-year-old driver of the state-run Kerala Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has been arrested for allegedly misbehaving with a female passenger on a moving bus in the district.
Ibrahim’s arrest was recorded soon after the incident took place on Tuesday, police said on Wednesday.
According to the complainant, she was sitting next to the driver’s seat while the state-run bus was passing through the Mananthavady route.
”The woman alleged that the driver touched her in an indecent manner in the pretext of shifting the gear of the vehicle,” a police officer told PTI.

The accused would be produced before a local court today, the officer added.
