A man whose ailing wife died in a bus on way to hospital was made to get off with his five-day-old child and mother in Damoh district of Madhya Pradesh, according to reports.

The driver and conductor of the bus have been taken into custody and a case under IPC Sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) lodged against them, SP Tilak Singh said Saturday.

According to reports, on Thursday, Ramsingh Lodhi, 37, a resident of Ghoghri village in Chhatarpur district, was on way to Damoh district hospital with wife Mallibai, who had taken ill after the birth of their daughter five days before. After Mallibai, 35, succumbed, the driver and conductor, allegedly coaxed by some passengers, asked Lodhi — along with his infant daughter and 65-year-old mother — to get off near Chainpura Parasai village, some 20 km before Damoh.

Two lawyers on a bike reportedly found Lodhi and his mother on the road, with Mallibai’s body next to them, and organised a vehicle for them.

While there were reports that a police vehicle came before the duo arrived, but left after checking basic details from Lodhi, the SP denied the allegation.

Home Minister Bhupendra Singh has ordered cancellation of the driver’s licence and the bus’s permit. A man from the transport company that operates the bus, however, claimed that Lodhi got off on his own after his wife died, saying the journey back home from Damoh would be costlier.
