India: Jihadists Had Planned A Bloodbath

Alertness of a bus driver, with easy targets, saved countless people. Bombs were also detected on a bridge before an on-coming train could cross.

From Times of India:
The alertness and bravery of a bus driver saved several lives as terrorists launched an attack here in Punjab on Monday.

Punjab Roadways driver Nanak Chand [pictured] did not panic even when the terrorists fired at the bus and instead scared the terrorists by driving towards them.

As the terrorists, numbering four, moved back, the driver swerved the bus and drove it away.

Since shots were fired at the bus, Nanak Chand drove it straight to a government hospital to get the injured passengers treated. He also called up the police to inform about the incident.

"There were 75 passengers in the bus. I thought that it was important to save their lives. I did not stop the bus," Nanak Chand told reporters. 
The incident took place around 5.30am on Monday.

"The driver's alertness saved several lives. Otherwise, the passengers could have been an easy target for the terrorists," said a Punjab Roadways general manager.

Nanak Chand was not the only one to save lives.

A major tragedy was averted nearby as alert villagers near Parmanand railway station spotted five bombs wired to a small bridge on the Amritsar-Pathankot railway section.

The bombs were detected minutes before a passenger train was to cross the bridge. The train was stopped 200 metres from the bombs.
