The contracted bus, which killed six passengers in the Pilivit accident, was traveling illegally. There was no such route for passenger buses between Lucknow and Pilivit. This bus was on its way to nationalization of the Transport Corporation. However, the general contract bus service is prohibited on the Red Corridor route
The game of misleading buses is under the patronage of the officials of the Transport Corporation. The Pilivit-Lucknow route is the route of the Red Corridor. So only buses owned by the Transport Corporation operate on this route. The revelation of the incident in the investigation of the accident has caused a stir among the officials of Bare Li area at the corporation headquarters.
The deal was without a red corridor route. An official at the management corporation’s headquarters said the bus number UP230T9304, contracted by Pilivit Depot, was signed in 2011. The journey is starting from Lucknow with Pilivit Depot ARM, Bare Lee Regional Manager and Kaiserbagh Bus Depot ARM Management and Station Incharge.
Awaiting investigation report
Transport Corporation MD Dhirraj Sahu has directed a detailed investigation into the Pilivit bus accident. At the same time, Chief Principal Manager (Operations) PR Belverrier said whether Lucknow is the road to Bareilly nationalization. Further action will be taken only after the investigation report of the bus accident from Bare Li.
