Gender warfare in the buses of Mumbai

Mid Day reports that the seven female bus conductors in Mumbai have asked to be shifted to clerical jobs because of the daily sexual harrasment that they face on buses. Their employer, BEST, has refused because, in Mid Day's words, "transferring the seven women could start a gender war within the organisation".

There's a film in this somewhere, but I hope that Pooja Bhatt never makes it. On the other hand, Bipasha Basu as a bus conductor would make for a pleasant commute.
