Shashi Tharoor, MP, has taken up with Union Minister of Railways Mukul Roy the need for urgently extending financial assistance to A Munaf, the Kerala University employee who was grievously injured in the accidental firing incident which occurred on July 6 at Central Railway Station, Thampanoor, here.The matter was taken up by Dr Tharoor in a letter addressed to the Union Minister today. Dr Tharoor who represents Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency, pointed out that the incident occurred due to the carelessness of the RPF personnel and notwithstanding the internal inquiry announced by them, the whole thing called for an immediate response from the Railways to help the hapless victim.Any further delay on this account would sully the image of the Railways with the public, he stated. What is, therefore, urgently required now, Dr Tharoor said, was the announcement of assistance to meet the expenses on the immediate medical treatment of Munaf,...
whose life was saved due to the timely surgery he underwent at the KIMS Hospital in the city.Apart from immediate financial assistance, there was also need for extending Munaf all the necessary financial and other material assistance to help him till he recovers and regains his health to get back to a normal life, Dr Tharoor said in his letter to the Minister, copy of which was also given to Railway Board Chairman Vinay Mittal.
