Clicking the selfie on trains putting you behind bars for five years. Similarly, for those who find playing cards a favorite time pass on their journeys, it's time to give up the habit for they may end up paying a hefty penalty. Identifying these acts as major nuisance, Indian Railways are proposing to make these offences punishable with jail term of a hefty penalty, a famous Newspaper reported.
For this, railway authorities are proposing amendment in the Railway Act so that violators can be dealt with strictly. In recent times a number of deaths have been reported while people trying to click selfies. It was noticed that the victims either fell down the moving train or were run over by approaching
trains while taking a selfie.
As per the proposal, violators can be booked for endangering public life or causing nuisance on railway premises. Railway Protection Force (RPF), which is responsible for safety of passengers and railway property, is proposing amendments in existing laws that do not have specific provisions to deal with such activities. Official sources said the violators can be booked under sections 147 and 153 of the Railway Act that deal with trespassing and causing threat to public life.
To begin with, prosecution against selfie will start in Gujarat and later it will be implemented in other divisions of the railway. However, as a long term measure, existing laws will be amended to deal with the nuisance. The proposal will soon be sent to the Home Ministry for approval.
"The government rail police (GRP) and RPF will be instructed to book individuals taking selfies near a train on the platform, at the compartment exits or on railway tracks. This activity is liable to endanger not only their lives, but also that of others," said a railway ministry official.
An RPF officer said on the condition of anonymity that in some cases, the violators can also be booked for attempt to suicide. "Clicking selfies on railway tracks is clearly an attempt to commit suicide. They will be booked accordingly. They may even be jailed for endangering their lives and that of others," he said.
As per the proposal, playing cards inside the train coaches or on railway platforms will also be prohibited. The violators can be booked under section 145 of the Railway Act which deals with drunkenness, causing nuisance and troubling fellow passengers.
