Two employees of Haryana Roadways, accused of outraging the modesty of a German woman tourist inside a bus, on Friday surrendered before Pushkar police.
Driver Santlal and conductor Mahendra Singh were arrested after they surrendered and would be paraded before the tourist in the police station, Pushkar station house officer Hanumanaram told reporters in Ajmer.
A Rajasthan police team went to Haryana and asked the roadways authorities to send the two for interrogation, he said.
