A bus passenger in India was arrested after his smelly socks caused a dispute between him and fellow passengers.

According to the BBC, the passengers lodged a complaint against Prakash Kumar, 27, for "causing a public nuisance" after removing his shoes and socks.

The passengers deemed the smell to be so pungent that they asked Mr Kumar to put them in his bag or throw them out.

After he refused, an argument ensued.

Passengers subsequently forced the bus driver to pull over at a police station where the complaint was lodged.
