Partha Saha from Agartala removed the engine of a bike and cut the body in two parts. He then connected the wheels by putting a longer rod than earlier.

According to Saha he is not keen on his daughter using the school bus once the lockdown gets over. He says it takes around 3 hours to charge the bike and once that is done it can run for up to 80 kms. The bike has a top speed of 40 kmph. A few days ago an e-rickshaw driver in West Bengal had also grabbed eyeballs when he divided his rickshaw into 4 separate compartments to promote social distancing . Many across the country lauded the idea, including Mahindra group Chairman, Anand Mahindra who wanted him recruited for the company's R&D department.
