Trying to click photos on a railway track proved fatal for two Class X students, who were hit by a train in east Delhi's Mayur Vihar. Police said seven boys had gone to the railway track to click selfies and photos of each other while returning home from tuition classes, at 4.30 pm Saturday. The incident took place at the northern railway line which connects New Delhi railway station with Anand Vihar railway station. The boys who died, Yash Kumar and Shubhma Saini, were students of Aster Public School and took math and science tuition in Shashi Garden.
According to police, Yash, Shubham and five of their friends had gone to the railway track just for clicking photos.

informing their families, they took a camera on rent for Rs 1,300 a day. They first went to the Commonwealth Games Village and clicked photos there before heading to the tracks," said a senior police officer.
"While taking photos, they saw a train heading towards them and moved aside. But another train came from the opposite side, and they were stuck between the two. The victims were hit by one of the trains," police said.
Yash's father Rajesh, who visited the spot on Monday, said his son never told him about their plan. "I would have never allowed him to come here. This is such a dangerous place," said Rajesh. Following the incident, one of the students made a PCR call. The two boys were rushed to a hospital, where they were declared brought dead. Deputy Commissioner of Police (railways) Parvez Ahmed said an inquest proceeding has been initiated and police have seized the camera, hired from a shop in east Delhi.
Yash's uncle Ravi said that he wasn't even allowed to carry his mobile phone to school or tuition classes. Poonam, who lives nearby, said she often dissuaded people from standing on the tracks. "I saw the seven boys playing on the tracks. They were posing for photos. I scolded them and asked them to leave, but they didn't listen," she said.

more commuters under its fold. With this new measure, commuters on Chennai Central/Beach - Tiruvallur - Arakkonam - Tiruttani, Chennai Central/Beach -Gummidipundi - Sulurpeta and Chennai Beach -- Tambaram -- Chengalpattu -- Tirumalpur will also be able to book local train tickets through the mobile app.
SECURITY ENHANCEMENT
It is heard that the railways will be implementing Integrated Security System (ISS) in the second phase. ISS which is a composite surveillance mechanism is already under implementation in 14 stations in Southern Zone and under the second phase the mechanism will be implemented in few more stations. About 27 railway stations have been identified for implementation in the second phase, according to sources. It is said that the railway board has asked all the zones of Indian Railways to nominate in this regard. So a list of 27 stations have been prepared which comprise Katpadi, Jolarpettai, Chengalpattu, Gummidipoondi, Velachery, Sulurpeta and Kanchipuram among others.
SECURITY MEASURES
Meanwhile, Southern Railway is working on increase security measures in stations in various divisions. Efforts to instal CCTV cameras in Railway stations in Chennai division are underway. This is a fallout of the gruesome murder of techie Swati at Nungambakkam Railway Station last year. However, the work has proceeded at a tardy pace and it is said that a change in the policy led to the delay.
Sources say that the camera installation work was supposed to be done by zonal railways, but after a review the job has been handed over to RailTel. Now a fresh deadline has been set and the work will be done in a phased manner by June and December this year. Camera installation will be done on an all India level to ensure uniformity, say the sources.
LHB COACHES
The Railways is also keen to augment the quality of coaches. As a first step, sources said Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram-Chennai Central Mail trains will be provided with LHB (Linke Hoffmann Busch) coaches. Consequently, two rakes of Train No 12623/12624 will be converted into LHB stock.
Railway authorities say while rake no 1 in Train 12623 (Chennai Central to Thiruvananthapuram) and Train 12624 (Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai Central) will be converted into LHB rake on 18 and 19 January respectively, rake no 2 in both the trains will be added on 19 and 20 January respectively. Consequently, the composition of the train would be revised as one First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier, one AC 2-tier, four AC 3-tier, 11 sleeper class and three general second class coaches.

Investigators from several police agencies across the nation, including those from the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), Uttar Pradesh police, and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) under the railway ministry are working on a tip-off from a man who claimed to have been trained by some people to 'loosen' railway tracks in such a way that it derails a train resulting in mass casualty. The man is a resident of Jaunpur's Poni area in Uttar Pradesh, sources said.
The man, who first provided this information to an alert citizen in Kurla, said that he got this 'training' in the last week of December, after Christmas, at some desolate stretches of the rail route between Allahabad and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. According to police,

the person he confided in, informed the RPF unit of the Central Railways, who in turn roped in the ATS unit of Maharashtra police. Soon, other central agencies along with the railway police of UP started investigating it, sources said.
"This man has said that a person named Suresh trained him and some others to derail trains quickly, and is offering Rs 70,000 per person for attempting this. An all-round investigation involving several agencies is currently on to verify this person's claim," said a top-ranking officer of UP police.
On Friday, the Superintendent of Police (SP) of the railway districts of Allahabad, Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Moradabad, Jhansi, and Agra in UP sent letters to their subordinates asking them to mount a massive track-checking exercise along with the RPF to find out more about the man's claim.
Tracks are held on to the sleepers — concrete blocks that are laid on the gravel-like ballast — with the help of elastic rail clips, and tracks are linked to each other with the help of metal plates called fish-plates.
Detailed queries sent to UP railway police Director General Gopal Gupta, RPF Director General SK Bhagat, and Maharashtra ATS Additional Director General Atul Kulkarni did not elicit a response till the time of going to the press.

BENGALURU: Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), one of the largest e-portals in India with millions of users logging in every day, will soon start selling hand-made products procured from rural women online, railway minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said on Monday.
"Indian Railways is keen to engage society in its innovative works. While we have already involved a number of public communities and NGOs under our cleanliness drive, we are also encouraging self-help groups of rural women to manufacture products that the railways will sell online through its web portal. The products will range from traditional food to handicrafts, shawls and other ethnic dresses. We have already asked women from Kashmir and the northeast to be a part of our initiative,

and will soon start selling their products," Prabhu said during an interaction with 4,000 graduates and under-graduate students of Kristu Jayanti College.
Comparing IRCTC with online retail major Amazon, he said IRCTC can any day become as huge as Amazon, and in doing so help rural women become self-dependent and encourage commer cialization of indigenous, hand-made products. "However, for attaining that level, we will never stoop low and sell doormats and shoes with the tricolour on them," said Prabhu, alluding to the recent controversy over Amazon selling doormats featuring the Indian national flag on its Canada website.
The minister said the Rs 50 crore allocation made towards innovation in last year's railway budget included the idea of e-commercialization of indigenous products, e-catering service, renovation of 400 stations and introduction of super-bullet trains. "We are trying to get more allocation for railways in the coming budget so that all this work can be done faster," he said, adding that the government is trying to increase the allocation to railways to Rs 4 lakh crore in the next three years.
Stressing on complete electrification of railways to avoid use of diesel and curb pollution, he said the railways is trying to get 90% of its trains to run on electricity in a few months.
"Soon, we'll come up with a transformation office that'll implement crowd sourced ideas. In another five years' time, 400 stations across the country will be renovated and will look like five-star airports."
