HYDERABAD: An eighth standard student was killed after an RTC conductor allegedly pushed him out of a running bus at Rehmathnagar crossroads on Sunday.

M. Vishnu Kumar, 13, a resident of Rehmathnagar, boarded the bus along with two friends for going to a hair salon when the conductor picked up an argument with him over change for issuing tickets. While the argument was continuing, the boy’s friends got down from the running bus in a hurry. When Kumar too, in a bid to alight at the next stop, was standing on the footboard, the conductor pushed him out resulting in grievous injuries on his head and abdomen. He died on the spot, police said.
