Many overloaded buses are spotted in Siliguri on a daily basis, which also raises eyebrows as the security of the travelers gets questioned in such cases.
Despite this, the administration does not seem to acknowledge the issue. Avoiding the law, many of these buses have been seen to carry goods rather than transporting passengers.
A similar sight was seen in Siliguri’s Mallaguri today when an overloaded bus bound towards Siliguri got stuck at an underpass.
It took a lot of time and even more efforts to free the bus, which led to a traffic jam in the area. The incident, however, has also made people wonder as to how long the administration will neglect the threat against safety that these overloaded vehicles carry.
