Five youths steal bus for a joy ride; land in police custody
Pune: A midnight "adventure" landed five
youths here in police custody after they `stole` a Pune
Muncipal Transport bus from a depot to enjoy a ride.
The youths -- all college students -- were arrested on
Monday after a patrolling team of policemen saw a city bus
being driven unevenly at the dead of the night in Kothrud area
and chased it to bring it to a halt.
According to police, the youths decided to have
"adventure and fun" when one of them told them that he can
drive heavy vehicle and set their eyes on the bus parked in
front of the depot.
The joy ride lasted for almost two hours -- despite a
dash against an electricity poll on the street -- before
they were caught by police.
Police said the appearance of the bus on that particular
route at an unusual hour, speed of the vehicle and style of
driving aroused suspicion, prompting them to chase and stop it
resulting in arrests.
