*      The last night train accident at Phulia station reminds us the mishaps of Gaishal,Uttar banga express at Sainthia and jnaneswary express
 The details of the accident at Ranaghat-Shantipur single line section in Sealdah DIV/ER Railway at Phulia station is given below.

   The up Santipur local was receiving at loop line of Phulia station for crossing with Dn Santipur Sealdah local which was due to enter the main line.
  According to source statement,R.S. Yadav the LPP/down train noticing the put back of home signal and then observing the caution home signal for main line but the train entered the loop line and occurred the HEAD ON COLLISION with the up train.As a result one  death and about 60 men was injured. Expecting pubic panic the LPP of up train Mr. Manaranjan  Ghosh fled.
  According to the statement given by railway authority Mr. R.S. Yadav passed the home signal in danger condition and the train was 50kmph.  He noticed that the chips of speedometer was removed without any witness.
  It is not clear that even if the LPP cross the danger signal in a entire  locking panel controlled station how the down train could enter the same line where the up train was occupied.
  At present EMU passenger likewise trains are servicing under
Recommendation of ERMC which was violating the HOER. Each LPP has to perform 15 to 17 over night duties and they have to stay 48 hrs out of home station. There are very short rest break in between 2 to 3 train working in a day in our tremendous busy suburban area. More over it should be noted that one man train operation is undoubtedly dangerous.
  AILRSA has submitted Memorandum against the present link. But no remedial measure has been taken.
  We think that the accident took place only due to the present unscientific and inhuman link. It has been noticed in our Sealdah DIV without any proper infrastructure,  huge vacant of LP/ALP, lack of proper  psychological test ,train services beyond traffic capacity are being done by goods driver are the cause of day by day mishaps. All this irregularities are being supported by some other Federation leaders  only for giving political popularity.
