A bus driver from the city of Pune in India has been given the death penalty after he went on a rampage killing nine people and injuring 27.
Eyewitnesses said he drove the bus as high speeds, on the wrong side of the road through very busy areas, damaging more than 40 cars before he was finally stopped.
During the 30 minute rampage, he ran over pedestrians and smashed into vehicles.
The court found Santosh Maruti Mane guilty of murder, attempted murder and damage to property.
Mr Mane’s lawyer pleaded that he was “mentally instable” but the judge ruled that he was of a “sane mind”.
