MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court Tuesday confirmed the death sentence on Pune rogue driver Santosh M. Mane, who two years ago hijacked a state transport bus and killed nine people.
The incident happened Jan 25, 2012 after he was denied a change from night duty to day duty by his superiors.
In a fit of rage, he hijacked the bus from the busy Swargate Bus Depot in the heart of the city and drove wildly for nearly 16 km before he was forced to a stop.
The incident left nine pedestrians dead, many were injured and several private and government vehicles as well as public and private property en route were damaged.
