Bengaluru: Two students of Alliance University have been arrested by the Anekal police and are chasing for other people who allegedly blocked a BMTC bus and assaulted its driver and conductor in Anekal on Thursday evening. 


The accused have been identified as Lalith and Shubhamlal, students of final year BBA. According to the police, the incident took place around 3.45 pm on Thursday at the VBHC Apartment bus stop on Chandapura Main Road. 

The BMTC bus, appended to depot 3 in Shanthinagar, was going from Anekal to City Market. At the point when the transport came to the VBHC bus stop, a couple of students riding motorbikes, including Lalith and Shubham Lal, pulled directly before the bus, hindering its direction. Bus brushed against bicycle 

They went ahead to get the driver Gururaju and conductor Nagappa and assaulted them, saying the bus had brushed against one of their bikes. 

A couple of auto-rickshaw drivers joined the assault. Therefore, the driver and the conductor were beaten mercilessly. After the fight got over and the students left, the driver and conductor informed their seniors and raced to the Anekal police station to file a complaint. 


The police discovered that the students held grudge against the bus driver and conductor. On April 9, Gururaju and Nagappa were incensed after students  showed legs to stop the bus. There was a heated argument between the driver and the students. 

Thursday’s episode could have been a striking back for the April 9 occurrence as some female students from the college were additionally there on the bus and the young men most likely needed to awe them. 

The students were produced before a magistrate who remanded in judicial custody.
