Karnataka authorities suspend driver for letting Monkey drive the bus


Karnataka – In an eccentric incident in Devengere – Karnataka, a bus driver let a monkey take the wheels while he watched the road. Authorities had suspended him after the video went viral on social media.

The incident took place on Monday, when the monkey boarded the bus with another passenger but refused to sit anywhere. The driver, named as M Prakash, allowed his new friend to sit on the steering wheel as they continued their journey to southern Karnataka.

When the video of the relaxed langur monkey taking the wheel went viral, the human driver’s employers took action.

The safety of passengers cannot be put at risk by “allowing a monkey on the steering” wheel, a spokesman said.

According to reports, the monkey eventually reached his destination and left the driver to continue.
