A spokesperson of the KSRTC Bus Transport released a statement about the incident and said:

We have removed the driver from duty and have asked the divisional security inspector to conduct an inquiry. He won’t be assigned any further duty until the probe is completed; he could even be suspended.

According to a person that was inside the bus when the incident happened, the monkey boarded the bus with another passenger.

The monkey reportedly went up to the driver and sat on its lap.

The monkey then took the steering wheel.

An employee of the KSRTC said that the langur came with a teacher that travels regularly on the same bus.

The monkey sat on the seat of the driver and refused to leave despite the best efforts from the passengers.

Prakash, the driver, allowed the animal to sit on his lap and even allowed the monkey to take over the steering wheel at some point, confirmed the employee.

Horrible, just horrible.
