Mumbai : A bus conductor, who returned the fare difference of Rs 10 as a coin instead of a note, was stabbed by an angry passenger in adjoining Navi Mumbai, police said on Monday.

Kavthekar, who stabbed the conductor in a moving NMMT bus on Saturday, has been arrested, police said. Senior Police Inspector of Panvel police station Ajaykumar Landge said the bus conductor is recuperating in a local hospital in Navi Mumbai.

The incident took place at 10.30 pm on the Old Panvel highway when Kavthekar demanded Rs 10 note instead of the 10 rupees coin in return from the bus conductor, who refused to oblige, police said.
