A. There is no worry for owner of bus. But he should be aware what passenger carrying and which parcels are delivering by his bus. Passenger will be accused but bus drivers also accused of ignorance of liability . Because law helps to vigilant not to sleepy.

A. Dear sir,
The owner of the bus is equally responsible it is called vicarious liability. It also applies in case of tenant and landlord relationship.

A. There's no liability on the part of the bus owner if the passenger is caught red handed with the illegal articles. Seizer list is prepared by the IO and the driver and conductor or other passenger might become the witnesses to such seizer.
