Mangalore(KAR), Oct 10: Employees of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) went on a brief flash strike on Friday, Oct 10, after a driver attached to the Dharmasthala depot was allegedly assaulted by the public following an accident.

The bus, proceeding to Subrahmanya from Dharmasthala, hit a car from behind and the car, in turn, hit a tourist jeep causing damage to the two vehicles, police said.
