With heightened security arrangements in place across the State following panic triggered by the demise of Jayalalithaa, the Southern Railway too has initiated a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to deal with emergencies.
According to Additional General Manager (in-charge) R. Kuppan, senior officers have been deployed to personally supervise operation of trains and assist passengers in need.
“We have posted officers to man control rooms and update the headquarters of developments. The General Manager had a safety meeting with security agencies and Railway Protection Force and Government Railway Police personnel in adequate strength have
been posted to guard railway property and passengers,” he said. Railway officials have also been put on high alert and are prepared to handle any eventuality, he added.
Meanwhile, passengers who had booked tickets made frantic calls to friends and relatives on the safety of travelling overnight to various destinations in the State. However, no interruption in train services was reported when reports last came in.
