Carelessness makes Old ISBT entry gate unsafe for buses and people

SHIMLA- At the entry point of Old ISBT Shimla, which is always congested due to passengers who stand waiting for their buses, has become risky for people due to lack of safety railing or safety wall. A few days back, one of the school kids almost fell down from the edge after being hit by passengers rushing toward the door of a moving bus. Luckily he managed to grab arm of his friend. Both of them could have fell down. People standing at this spot often move backward when buses take U turn to enter the ISBT. Kids are at maximum risk as there is nothing to hold them if they slip from the edge. Why everyone waiting for a mishap to happen?
