According to witnesses on the bus, a passenger entered the vehicle, drew a handgun and shot the driver in the head, Balram said.

“The suspect had been picked up as a passenger a short distance from the scene.

“Witnesses informed reaction officers that the bus was in motion when the driver was attacked. The vehicle then rolled back for a short distance before coming to a standstill in the centre of the road.”
