‘Railways has failed to curb track deaths’

The Central and the Western Railways have completely failed to minimise the deaths under its wheels, despite the high court issuing show cause notice to both the general managers one year ago. Railway activists have decided to expose the Railway’s inaction in court on February 22. Data shows that 2297 passengers died in 2012, while 2145 passengers died in 2011.

Petitioner and rail activist, Sameer Jhaveri said, “There has been no improvement in the functioning of both the railways and people are dying or losing their limbs daily. The CR and WR officers have not paid heed to the warnings and directives given by the high court. So, we will expose the Railways’ apathy to stop the killings of innocent passengers.”
The Government Railway Police (GRP) data shows that the death toll or injured passengers have either increased or had been marginally decreased. According to the data 2,297 passengers died in 2012, while 2145 died in 2011 due to line-crossing, falling in the gap, falling from running trains, dash to the pole and other reasons, despite steps taken by both the Railways.
