The infamous bus driver who was caught dancing on camera to the beats of famous number " Azonto" failed to appear before the Land Transport Authority tribunal today.

Ritesh Kumar, 33, was summoned to appear before the tribunal today and present his side of the story.

LTA chief executive, Naisa Tuinaceva said Kumar was called so the tribunal could hear from him as what made him to such a thing while driving a public transport.

Tuinaceva said they also wanted Kumar to clarify his claims that the video was edited before it was published on Youtube and Facebook.

LTA spokesperson Alfred Wiliame confirmed to FijiLive that Kumar despite being informed to appear, failed to arrive at their office and this a major setback for them as they want to investigate the case and come up with a decision.

He added that LTA will issue a notice to Kumar to appear in the next 7 days and if the driver fails to attend in the given timeframe then a decision on the matter will be made without his side of the story.

Meanwhile, the bus company which employed Kumar when the video was produced has disassociated itself from the saga.

Kadar Buksh chief executive, Tasdiq Shah when contacted for a comment this afternoon confirmed to FijiLive that Kumar was no longer employed by them and they do not wish to be part of the saga.

According to Shah, Kumar tendered his resignation in the first week of August after the incident in July.
