Protesting against the inordinate delay in the arrival of buses, nearly 150 residents today detained three government buses by blocking the road at Kaniyur on the outskirts.
The residents, including women and children, complained that the buses to the city and other surrounding places were arriving late, inconveniencing school going children and office goers.
They raised slogans against State Transport Corporation management and threatened to intensify their agitation if it failed to streamline the services.
Senior district and police officials, who arrived at the spot, managed to convince the protestors and assured to take up the issue with the Department concerned. The crowd dispersed later.
It may be noted that the residents of K G Chavadi, bordering Tamil Nadu and Kerala, had detained six buses early this week, citing similar problem.
