MUMBAI: When Railway Protection Force (RPF) officers caught a teenager performing stunts at Kurla station on Thursday, they were surprised to find nearly 50 pictures of him posing against the backdrop of trains stored on his cellphone.
Ashraf Shaikh (19) had been sharing these photos with his friends and garnering comments. Performing stunts is a punishable offence and has cost many commuters their life and limb.
Shaikh works as an air-conditioning mechanic and lives at Nehru Nagar in Kurla. On Thursday, he was bending out a train, his leg dragging along the platform
even as the train moved. RPF personnel patrolling on platform 7 caught him after the train halted and brought him to the Kurla outpost.
"Shaikh told us that he was hooked to performing stunts and had got someone to click his pictures posing atop trains. He had captioned some of the pictures with the words 'Branded Kamina' and typed Urdu couplets beneath other pictures," said an official. He was booked under Section 156 of the Indian Railways Act and was produced before a railway court that sentenced him to five days in prison.
This year, the Kurla GRP has nabbed 139 people for performing stunts. "Nearly four to five rooftop travellers have been electrocuted after coming into contact with high-voltage overhead wires this year. Despite making announcements at stations and warning those caught, these incidents continue. On Thursday, we caught a 20-year-old man, Sachin Pawar, for travelling on the rooftop," said Suresh Atri, senior inspector of Kurla RPF. "Pawar had boarded a CST-bound local at Govandi and climbed on the roof. I was travelling in the same train and noticed him at Chembur. When he got off at Tilak Nagar, I chased him and nabbed him," added Atri. Pawar is a painter by profession and admitted that he frequently travelled atop trains.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair.
