Maoists hijack bus in Orissa, let off passengers
Malkangiri, Orissa (PTI): Armed Maoists hijacked a bus, but let off the passengers before driving it away in Orissa's Malkangiri district on Saturday.

A group of 20 Maoists, demanding reintroduction of bus services to remote Bejingwada area, stopped the private bus near Gamphakunda Chowk , about 35 km from here, District Superintendent of Police Satyarat Bhoi said.

They asked the passengers to alight and drove away with the bus to Bejingwada, taking with them the driver and the staff, he said.

Earlier, there were two buses to Bejingwada, but the owners stopped running them in view of the Maoist menace in the area.

The bus owner was "summoned" by the Maoists at Bejingwada, he said.

The bus was going from from Motu to Nunduli in Babarangpur district via Malkangiri.

This could be a great help for troubles later. Usually when you think of busses you think of the bright yellow ones that you used to be forced to ride on the way to school but not anymore. Although busses are still primarily focused on bringing transportation to a large number of people at a time, they are now shifting their attention to building busses made for luxury and style. They are comfortable and fun to ride and drive.
