Gorkha Post



NEW DELHI — In a bizarre incident, Indian police have arrested a man after his stinky socks caused a dispute between him and fellow passengers traveling in a bus.

According to the Hindustan Times, 27-year-old Prakash Kumar,was travelling to the capital Delhi from Dharmashala on the intervening night of November 26 and 27.

The incident occurred when Prakash put off his shoes and socks near Kangra while traveling on a bus. The fellow passenger irritated from the stench, asked Kumar to put his socks in his bag or throw them out. But he refused, sparking a brawl.

On his reluctance, the fellow passenger then forced the driver to take the bus to a nearby police station in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and lodged a complaint against him for “causing a public nuisance,” BBC reported.

Kumar was later arrested by the police. He said his socks did not have a foul smell, adding that the passengers just traded heated arguments with him for no reason.

Later, Kumar was granted bail and was released from the police custody.

The incident teaches us to wear clean socks and avoid such inconvenience to ourselves and others while travelling.
