The staff of Hari Nagar Depot bus, including it’s driver, conductor and marshal on July 12 stopped the bus near Janakpuri, where a girl suspected to be friends with them performed her dance whose video had gone viral on social media, said a senior DTC officer.

“Driver of the bus has been placed under suspension and it’s conductor, who is a contractual employee, has been served show-cause notice for termination. The bus marshal from Civil Defence has been repatriated to his parent department,” said the officer.
