MELBOURNE: A 29-year-old Indian-origin bus driver was charred to death on Friday when a man set him on fire after pouring some flammable liquid on him in front of horrified passengers in Brisbane town in Australia.

He was driving a Brisbane City Council bus and was targeted by a man who threw an “incendiary device” at him which sparked a fire.

Alisher, a well-known singer in the Punjabi community, died on the spot while several passengers on board the bus at the time managed to escape through the rear door, police said.

Six persons were rushed to a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation and minor injuries, they said.
