BENGALURU: Every year, around 1,200 people die after falling from moving trains in the suburban rail network across the country .But claims for compensation filed before the Railway Claims Tribunal (RCT) by family members of the victims are often checkmated with this poser: Was the victim a bonafide passenger (with a valid train ticket) to be eligible for compensation?
Family members of Sham Ramchand Pawar (a train accident victim) too faced a similar predicament for 14 long years because of non-availability of a train ticket. However, recently the Karnataka High Court came to their aid by reinterpreting the term `bona fide passenger' and ordering payment of Rs 4 lakh as compensation.

Shame on railways, why they is fighting this case for 14 years when accident happens on its rail tracks. even if he was a illegal passenger or vendor does it take moral and legal responsibility away from railways?
if railway says he was a illegal Vendor what steps railway take against it own staff like TTE, station staff, RPF who fails to prevent his entry into railway station and train?
