The roof of a running bus broke away in the backward Gadchiroli district on Wednesday. Fortunately, it got stuck in a corner of the bus preventing a major accident.
The incident exposed the condition of buses of Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), which are being still put to use. The bus continued to move for a few kilometers with the broken roof.
The incident occurred within a few days after a dead body in Bhamragadh taluka of Gadchiroli district was carried on a motorcycle as the ambulance was not available.
The bus was going to Aheri from Gadchiroli on Wednesday when its roof came out. A video of the incident shows that the roof came out of the main body from one side of the bus.
