Driving a bus for over 300 km at a stretch is no big record. But driving a bus without windscreen for such a long distance and that too at 80 kmph is definitely a record of sorts.

Recently, a driver of APSRTC Hyderabad-I depot ferrying some 30 passengers in a Volvo bus accomplished this dangerous feat. "When we asked him why did he risk his life and those of the passengers, the driver said he did so at the instance of his depot manager," the Rajendranagar police said.

This `adventure' came to light when the police were investigating into a school bus accident near Shivarampally crossroads that left 15 kids with bleeding injuries. Taking a serious note of the RTC driver's `rare accomplishment', the police booked a criminal case against him and his manager also.
