According to the first information obtained; It was determined that the bus AŞ driver warned the female passenger who did not print his Istanbul Card when he got on the bus. When it came to the last stop, it was seen that the driver followed the female passenger who got out from the middle door of the bus and warned him in the platform area, and there was a scuffle.
As a result of ongoing investigation, camera recordings of the crime scene were accessed. The images obtained were immediately examined. In the images; it was observed that the driver grabbed the female passenger, who was walking with his back turned, by the shoulder, and then the passenger responded by kicking this action.
On behalf of our institution, we find it unacceptable for the driver to adopt this attitude instead of staying on the defensive or retreating. It is unacceptable that one of our staff intervenes with a woman through physical contact. The fact that our female passengers show reflexes and respond physically does not change this principle. Also, as seen from the images, the response of the driver to the female passenger is beyond measure. This violence cannot be accepted in any way. Necessary action will be taken about the driver of Bus AŞ. "
