LUDHIANA: The accidents and tragedies at railway tracks in and around city have become a common phenomenon these days as there is hardly any day when one does not hear any death on the railway tracks.The count progressed as suicidal deaths divulged by the records of Government Railway Police (GRP) at the railway station, which shows the increasing depression among the city people.
As per GRP data, around 25 deaths took place during this year till August 5. The deceased included 19 men and 6 women. The maximum deceased were between 16 to 50 years of age at different railway tracks of the Ludhiana and its surrounding areas, which come under the GRP jurisdiction. Talking about the reason behind these deaths, SHO, Inderjit Singh said that first of all people move in a very hap-hazard manner and do not even wait for a single minute to let train cross.
“Due to the impatience, many people come in trap of trains and become victims of accidental deaths, while for the suicides its easiest place to commit suicide as in outer areas there is hardly any person living around tracks who could stop them from committing suicide. Many persons also leave bodies after murdering people. It’s a very disappointing scene,” he added while talking.
Though number of times trespassers also come into the trap of the trains despite the fact, everybody knows that there is a risk to life in trespassing and railways carry out number of the awareness drives in the city over it even then people do not stop to cross the railway lines all across the city due to which also the number of deaths on the railway tracks have also increased over the past time in the Ludhiana.
