According to Shaikh, the conductor started to abuse her for not responding to his call. When she argued, he allegedly tried to hit her.
The next day, Shaikh went to the Oshiwara police, which filed a non-cognisable complaint.
However, it was only after HT pursued the matter that the investigation started. “We will summon the bus conductor to record his statement and a lady officer will record the victim’s statement,” said senior inspector Dilip Rupwate.
