‘inhumane act of dtc driver doesn’t merit mercy

Adv P & H High Court Chandigarh

NEW DELHI: The Delhi high court has upheld the dismissal of a DTC driver for his "inhumane and atrocious" conduct of not allowing an old woman to board the bus and abusing her daughter in public.

Justice Kailash Gambhir upheld the sacking of driver Inder Sain by the Delhi Transport Corporation's disciplinary authority. "This riotous, inhumane and atrocious conduct of the petitioner (Sain) certainly does not in any manner sway this court to reduce his punishment from the removal of service to some other lesser punishment," Justice Gambhir said, upholding Sain's ouster on a complaint by the elderly woman's daughter.

"As a civilized society, we cannot tolerate such people who do not have even the basic decency and regard for the elderly people and when they are advised to discipline themselves, they rebound with more savagery and barbarism," the court said. Sain had approached the high court against a labour court order that had in December 2005 refused to interfere with the disciplinary authority order directing his removal from service.
