In this way, there is a provision of punishment and fine under the law of railways for entering any railway property without permission and obstructing railway operation. In this sequence, yesterday, the Railway Protection Force launched a campaign against crossing the railway line at Shakurbasti, Delhi. In this, taking action against more than 100 people, their challans were deducted.
On the other hand, SN Malik, spokesperson of the railway organization National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), says that instead of spending money on bullet trains from the government, the focus should be on the security of Indian Railways. He says that in urban, populated areas, wall or fencing should be installed on both sides of the railway line. This will reduce the incidents of tracepass in railway property and also reduce such accidents. Soon a letter will be written to the board in this regard from our side.
