DCW chief conducts surprise raid at New Delhi station; asks govt to deploy more female constables

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Delhi Commission for Women Chief Swati Maliwal paid a surprise visit to New Delhi Railway Station on Sunday. Maliwal saw that only two female constables were deployed at the railway station, even as thousands of women commuters were moving around at 1.30 am New Delhi Railway Station situated between Ajmeri Gate and Kashmeri gate is the main railway station in Delhi. Thousands of passengers from across the nation travel each day from here. It is one of the busiest stations in India in terms of passenger movement. Despite all this, only two female constable were seen on duty ear. No female officer or police personnel was found on the Ajmeri Gate Police Chowki that guards one exit and entry point of the Railway Station. The central Railway Station is also very close to GB Road. The city’s crime branch has busted many human trafficking cases and the girls have been lifted from the Railway Station only. This makes the area more vulnerable to crime and women being unsafe in the area. Many dark spots and lanes serve as a hub for crime in the area making it more sensitive. Also, keeping in mind the increased number of unwanted incidents in the area compelled the Railway officials to install more CCTV cameras. As per reports, only nine out of the 213 stations under the Railway authority has CCTV cameras. According to Railway officials Rs.12 crore from the Nirbhaya fund was allotted to the stations to ensure safety of women. Incidents like theft and chain snatching has seen a fair increase in number this year. In 2017, 1,225 cases of theft of passengers’ belongings were reported till June. Last year, 12 instances of robberies and 3 of dacoity were reported in the Delhi area.A total of 2,874 cases of theft were reported in trains coming to Delhi or while departing from a station in the capital, along with 74 cases of robbery. While Railway Protection Force believes that the encroachments around the Railway tracks is a huge concern and the number of slum housing clusters are a bigger problem for them as many ‘anti-social’ elements stay around or in these areas. Despite all of these issues and the sensitivity of area on being prone to crime has not made the officials take proper measures to avoid such situations.

Railways asked to compensate passenger for stolen luggage

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Railways has to ensure safety of not just the passengers, but also their belongings, Delhi state consumer commission has said while holding it responsible for service deficiency after a commuter’s luggage got stolen. The State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (SCDRC), while dismissing the Railways’ appeal against a district forum’s order, asked it to pay a compensation of Rs 35,000 for deficiency in service and Rs 10,000 for litigation expenses to Haryana resident Shaveta Chaudhary. “Railways has to ensure the safety of the passengers and also the safety of his belongings and any shortcoming or inadequacy or imperfection amounts to deficiency in service and therefore it renders Railways liable to pay compensation as loss or injury including the mental injury suffered by him,” the state commission’s Presiding Member Salma Noor said. The commission rejected the Railways’ claim that it was not responsible as the stolen luggage was not booked or paid for, saying a passenger is not bound to do so. “A passenger travelling by a train is entitled to carry certain baggage or luggage free of cost. There is no question of entrusting such a baggage/luggage to the Railways and getting receipt thereof,” the commission said. The commission also did not accept the contention of the Railways that it was not responsible as the incident was a result of failure of law and order, which is a State subject. According to the complaint filed by Chaudhary, she booked a 2-Tier AC ticket to travel on October 9, 2010 from New Delhi to Habibganj in Bhopal in the Bhopal Express. It said as soon as the train departed, she began settling down, a bag kept on the upper berth went missing. The stolen bag had a laptop and several valuable articles worth of Rs 45,000, it added. The complainant could not find any official to file a complaint as the train had already departed, it said, adding that she then made a call to PCR but they expressed their inability to help her as the train had left the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station. The TTE arrived later to check the tickets and he also expressed difficulty in assisting her in any manner. A complaint was filed at the Habibganj Railway Station the next day itself from where the FIR was sent to the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station after two months. As there was no action from the authorities, she lodged a complaint at the district consumer forum in Delhi.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

After being snubbed twice by Air India, Ravindra Gaikwad takes train to Delhi

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>After Air India cancelled two tickets booked by Ravindra Gaikwad on Delhi-bound flights, Shiv Sena MP on Tuesday evening boarded the Rajdhani Express for the national capital. He was booked this afternoon on a IInd AC sleeper compartment. The train left Mumbai Central at 5 pm and will reach Delhi around 8.30 am on Wednesday. As per an official, it was not clear whether the MP was travelling alone or with some aides and security personnel, IANS reported.Hardening its stand further against Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, Air India cancelled two tickets booked by him on Delhi-bound flights, days after domestic carriers barred him from flying on their aircraft for assaulting an AI staffer.Gaikwad booked a seat on flight AI 806 from Mumbai to Delhi for tomorrow earlier today through his staff which was promptly cancelled by the airline. This was followed by another attempt to book a seat on AI 551 from Hyderabad to Delhi, again for tomorrow, which was cancelled, too.Both these bookings were made on open tickets which were issued to Gaikwad, who has been declared persona non grata by domestic airlines, before the ban was imposed on him, a AI source said.The airline is now ascertaining how many open tickets and frequent flyer tickets have been issued to the MP from Osmanabad in Maharashtra so that those could be cancelled, the source said.Earlier, private TV news channel Times Now said the MP had booked a berth on Mumbai-New Delhi Rajdhani for today. The channel also showed the reservation chart pasted on coach A 3 of the train parked at Mumbai Central Railway Station which had his name. However, Gaikwad did not turn up, triggering speculation he could board the train at some other station on way to the national capital.The Shiv Sena MP has been barred by all major domestic airlines for assaulting an elderly duty manager of the national carrier last Thursday in an unprecedented step in Indian aviation history. Unrepentent, Gaikwad brazened it out and was seen on national TV for two days boasting about the way he assaulted the Air India employee.A day after the incident, the national carrier had cancelled the return ticket of the MP and private airliner IndiGo followed suit, forcing him to take a train to Maharashtra.The issue also figured in Parliament yesterday, with Shiv Sena MPs creating an uproar, contending it violated the Constitution and the law and demanding lifting the ban.However, Civil Aviation Minister P Ashok Gajapati Raju criticised the conduct of Gaikwad, saying “I never in my wildest dreams thought that an MP will get caught in such an incident”. He said violence of any kind on an aircraft can be “disastrous”.An FIR has been registered against him on the basis of the complaint lodged by Air India for repeatedly hitting 62-year-old Duty Manager R Sukumar with sandals on a Pune-Delhi flight after it landed. The MP was angry at not being given a business class seat though he had boarded an all-economy flight.Air India in a statement asserted that “the ban is still in place”.Sources said the airline has also issued a non-acceptance order to station managers and booking offices informing them of “restriction on acceptance and travel of potentially unruly and unsafe passengers is being followed on Air India flights for Ravindra Gaikwad till further notice”.The order, dated March 26, was issued in view of “various risk to safety, security of airline employees, fellow passengers and threat to company property”, sources added.

Railway officials asked to inspect tracks at 3AM during winter to check for fractures

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> In wake of the recent train accidents, the railways has instructed its officials, especially those posted in places that experience intense cold conditions, to inspect the tracks at 3 in the morning.The drive is being conducted from January 5 to February 5 to inspect tracks for fractures and other anomalies that become the root cause of train accidents, said AK Mittal, Chairman Railway Board. Railway officers and workers are able to detect 95 per cent of rail fractures but the rest 5 per cent that remain undetected trigger such accidents, he said. Maximum fractures take place between 3 and 4 in the morning when temperature is the lowest, he said, adding, rail officials in NCR and all over the country have been asked to carry out the inspection of tracks.Holding increasing rail traffic responsible for frequent train accidents in the recent past, Mittal said that the traffic near North Central Railway’s Kanpur region and on Delhi-Howrah route is 150 per cent more than its capacity. The surge in rail traffic is expected to come under control only after 2019 when the Dedicated Freight Corridor will be ready, he said.Mittal, who was in Kanpur today, reviewed the accident spot in Pukhrayan where Indore-Patna Express derailed on November 20, which claimed more than 150 lives and left many injured. While talking to mediapersons after inspection, he said that only a detailed investigation will explain the reason behind three major train accidents in last two months near Kanpur.He was referring to December 28 Sealdah-Ajmer Express derailment near Rura Railway Station and January 12 goods train derailment near Unnao in UP, besides the Pukhrayan case. “Now railway cannot cut down on number of trains but cautious steps can be taken in the direction of avoid such mishaps. Railway board is planning to purchase modern equipment including ‘Mobile Ultrasonic Vans’ to check any anomaly on the tracks,” he said.
