Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Monday announced a sum of ₹1 lakh for a class VIII boy, Praful Sharma, for saving the lives of 15 students last year.

The students’ bus had started moving downhill into a ditch, with the driver not on board.

Praful jumped into the driver’s seat and applied the brakes, saving his schoolmates.
