His fellow passengers protested the pungent stinking odour in the AC Bus.
On Saturday, Himachal Pradesh Police arrested a man whose stinky socks caused a showdown in a bus as his fellow passengers protested pungent odour.
He removed his shoes and socks on a bus going from State of Himachal Pradesh to New Delhi and put them near aisle.
The fellow passengers protested and asked him to put away the offending socks or throw them out.
But he refused which sparked a heated confrontation that forced bus driver to stop at a Police Station in Una District of Himachal Pradesh.
Una Police Chief Sanjeev Gandhi stated that the bus stopped several times because of smelly chaos before they came to the police station.
The Police Chief stated that,”He was arrested on the charges of the causing public nuisance and later released on bail. Accused had threatened other passengers and caused a disturbance at the police station”.
But the man in turn filed complaint against his fellow passengers and bus crew for harassment and also insisted that his socks did not smell.
Police stated that the man left the area in another bus a day later.
