RPF's Crackdown on Stone-Pelting: Passenger Safety Paramount

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Railway Protection Force (RPF) has taken a stern stance against stone-pelting incidents targeting trains, aiming to ensure the safety of passengers. Commandant Ashutosh Pandey of Lucknow RPF has initiated the formation of special teams in collaboration with all police stations within the division to apprehend stone-pelters.

Recent incidents, such as the pelting of stones at the Shatabdi Express traveling from Lucknow between Amethi and Chilbila, have prompted proactive measures. Passengers promptly alerted authorities about these incidents, prompting swift action.

In response to escalating incidents of stone-pelting on various trains, RPF Commandant Ashutosh Pandey has mobilized teams across all police stations within the Lucknow division. These teams, operating incognito, will diligently search for and apprehend stone-pelters, while also keeping a vigilant eye on individuals loitering near railway tracks.

RPF Inspector Anil Kumar highlighted the persistent monitoring of individuals engaging in anarchic activities, particularly targeting trains with stone pelting. Notably, incidents of stone pelting were reported on the Gorakhpur-Prayagraj Vande Bharat train on March 18, resulting in damage to the exterior glass of the train. Prompt action was taken as passengers promptly reported the incident to the RPF, leading to the initiation of an investigation by the authorities.

While the incident caused no casualties, it underscored the need for heightened vigilance and prompt response to ensure the safety and security of passengers. Despite the challenges posed by such incidents, railway authorities remain committed to ensuring the smooth and safe operation of train services in Uttar Pradesh.
