Hubballi: Despite the lynching of a Muslim man onboard a train in Ballabhgarh, the South Western Railway ran a Ramzan special train between Yeshwantpur and Belagavi without any security. Train No. 06589, Yeshwantpur-Belagavi Tatkal Special Express left Yeshwantpur at 8.35pm on Friday and reached Belagavi by 8.10am on Saturday. It carried about 1,100 passengers including women, children and senior citizens
Train No. 06590, Belagavi-Yeshwantpur Tatkal Special Express is scheduled to depart Belagavi at 7.10pm on June 26 and expected to reach Yeshwantpur at 06.20am the next day. There is only trip in each direction. The trains have one AC 3-tier coach, 10 second class sleeper coaches and two luggage-cum-brakevans with disabled-friendly compartment. The trains have stoppages at Tumakuru, Arsikere, Birur, Davanagere, Harihar,
Haveri, Hubballi, Dharwad and Londa.
Srinath, who travelled from Yeshwantpur to Hubballi on Friday night, told STOI that a drunken person with unreserved ticket created nuisance in the sleeper coaches. "Though the TTE tried to convince him that it is a fully reserved train, he was not ready to listen and even disturbed reserved passengers. Due to his behaviour, TTE insisted that he disembark at Tumakuru. After the argument, the drunken man assaulted the TTE. When we asked the TTE to hand over the drunken person to security personnel, we were stunned to know that there are no personnel in the whole train," he said.
Shalini Patil (name changed on request) said that it was a nightmare to travel without security personnel. "Our sleep was spoiled due to the incident. Who is responsible in case of theft, assault or any type of untoward incident?" she asked.
Sunil Nalavade lamented that the SWR charged Rs 100 for sleeper class and additional Rs 260 for the special train, but neglected the security part. "SWR should clarify what special facility it gives in such special trains while it is failed to provide basic security. If they can't deploy security personnel, they should announce it openly so that passengers can take their own risk or look for alternatives," he said.
"There was display to indicate that train no. 06589 was Ramzan special at platform no. 5 at Yeshwantpur on Friday night. The electronic display was showing train no. 16572 which had already departed. When we enquired at the station, we got to know that the staff was unaware about train no. 06589 as it is supposed to run for only a single trip," said Suresh Budihal, a passenger.
An inspector attached to the Railway Protection Force (RPF), informed that the Railways never deputes either RPF or Government Railway Police personnel for temporary trains.
"We spoke to the RPF officials in this regard. As the RPF is facing shortage of personnel and the existing personnel are deployed o routine trains, it's difficult to escort temporary trains that run for 1-2 or more trips. However, we ensure security personnel in routine daily, bi-weekly, tri-weekly and weekly trains," said E Vijaya, chief public relations officer, SWR, Hubballi

AURANGABAD: The South Central Railway (SCR) has announced 18 special trains between Nanded and Nagpur to clear the extra rush of passengers. These trains will be pressed into services during July and August, an official release said.
Accordingly, Nanded-Ajni (Nagpur) special train (number 07629) will depart from Nanded at 8.30pm every Monday beginning from 3rd July till 28th August and reach Ajni at 5.25am on the next day.
In the return direction, Ajni-Nanded Special train (number 07630) will depart Ajni at 10.20pm every Tuesday beginning from 4th July till 29th August and reach
Nanded at 8.10am on the next day.
These special trains will stop at Purna, Basmath, Hingoli, Washim, Akola, Murtizapur, Badnera, Chandur, Dhamangaon, Pulgaon and Wardha in both the directions. The trains will consist of 12 coaches including one AC II tier, two AC III tier, seven sleeper class, and two luggage cum break van coaches.
SCR authorities said latest special trains announced between Nagpur and Nanded would run in continuation with weekly special trains that are already running between these two cities.
The weekly train, which made its first trip on March 20, witnessed a topsy-turvy ride as it remained on and off the track during the initial period over occupancy issues. The SCR authorities, however, carried out a rejig of train timings and its halts before deciding to run it as a weekly special. The weekly special train between Marathwada city of Nanded and Vidarbha city of Nagpur is being operated as a precursor to the proposed regular train, authorities said

वाराणसी : वाराणसी-बड़ोदरा न्यू महामना एक्सप्रेस के शुभारंभ को लेकर असमंजस की स्थिति पैदा हो गई है। नया रैक बनारस पहुंचने के बाद भी 23 जून को प्रस्तावित उद्घाटन टाल दिया गया। ऐसा माना जा रहा है कि गुजरात में चुनाव के मद्देनजर नई महामना एक्सप्रेस को प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी हरी झंडी दिखाएंगे। रेल मंत्रालय व रेलवे बोर्ड को उनसे समय नहीं मिलने के कारण उद्घाटन टाल दिया गया है।
रेलवे के अधिकारी कहते हैं कि पीएम की तिथि मिलने के बाद ही न्यू महामना पटरी पर उतरेगी। इसकी पूरी तैयारी की जा चुकी है। नया रैक बड़ोदरा से बनारस पहुंच गया है। वाराणसी जंक्शन के यार्ड में खड़ा किया गया है। इस ट्रेन का नंबर भी तय कर दिया गया है।
अप यानी वाराणसी से बड़ोदरा के लिए 20902 व बड़ोदरा से वाराणसी के लिए 20901 निर्धारित किया गया है।
यह ट्रेन देश की दूसरी महामना एक्सप्रेस होगी जो पीएम नरेंद्र मोदी के संसदीय क्षेत्र बनारस की झोली में आई है। वाराणसी-नईदिल्ली वाया लखनऊ के रास्ते पहली महामना एक्सप्रेस को पीएम मोदी ने लगभग ढाई वर्ष पूर्व हरी झंडी दिखाई थी।
ट्रेन में एक एसी प्रथम, दो एसी द्वितीय, आठ शयनयान, चार जनरल, एक पैंट्रीकार व दो गार्ड ब्रेकवान सहित कुल 18 डिब्बे होंगे।
इस ट्रेन का किराया भी अलग श्रेणी में निर्धारित है। शताब्दी, राजधानी, व दुरंतो के बाद महामना एक्सप्रेस का किराया निर्धारित किया गया है। उम्मीद जताई जा रही है कि शीघ्र ही ट्रेन की समय सारिणी निर्धारित कर दी जाएगी। इसके बाद पीआरएस यानी पब्लिक रिजर्वेशन सिस्टम के माध्यम से बर्थ की बुकिंग शुरू हो जाएगी।
