  1. The news posted is incorrect here. There were no passangers in the bus- there were only the conductor and the driver. The Naxals fled on hearing another Jeep approaching not bravely after burining the bus.

    Destroying Public property is not a way to carry out a movement. The public has to suffer in absence of a bus.
