Pune: Bus driver Santosh Mane, who went on a rampage yesterday killing 9 people and injured 27 others, was on Thursday sent to police custody till February 3.

Earlier he was produced in a session court in Pune on Thursday.

Mane’s bizarre road drama went on for almost an hour before the man could be overpowered and arrested.
At 8 am on Wednesday, Mane, a driver with the state transport corporation, using a master key to state buses, hijacked a Satara bound bus from the Swargate terminal.

Mane then went berserk, driving in a frenzy, most of the times on the wrong side of the road, ramming into vehicles mowing down pedestrians, as the city police joined in the chase on motorcycles. Sharif Kutti, a student who was among those who helped overpower Mane, said that it was a nightmare.
The police is yet to clarify the motive of the bus driver. But, the case is certainly one of the worst cases of random killings in the country.
