MANGALORE: Sharif (30), a physically challenged, was allegedly pushed out of a KSRTC bus by the conductor for boarding the bus alone on Saturday. Mr. Sharif told presspersons that he had boarded the bus in Bejai and the conductor began harassing him immediately and allegedly stopped the bus at Padil and pushed him out of the bus, he said.

Soon, a few people gathered at the spot and began protesting against the ill-treatment meted out to Mr. Sharif. However, KSRTC officials rushed to the spot and apologised, sources said.
