BRISBANE, Australia >> A mother who stabbed to death her seven children and a niece in northern Australia in 2014 will not stand trial for murder because The Queensland state Mental Health Court ruled a month ago that Thaiday, then 37, had been of “unsound mind” when the children were slain.

The court was also told that when Mr Alisher smiled at O'Donohue as he boarded the bus he took that as a sign the driver was part of the conspiracy.

Mr Alisher, also known as Manmeet Sharma, was a beloved Indian singer and well known in the Punjabi community.

His death prompted a huge outpouring of grief and sparked a push for greater safety measures to protect bus drivers.

Passengers trapped on the burning bus were saved when taxi driver Aguek Nyok kicked out the back door of the vehicle.
