The matter of plying of sleeper buses was under the scanner of even the Punjab and Haryana high court. 

Ludhiana district transport officer Manpreet Singh Chhatwal said the orders landed in his office on Thursday and were to be implemented with immediate effect. He said these buses are meant to ferry only tourists, but were ferrying usual passengers from one state to other.
