Morning Accident Leaves Citizens Shocked | Body Was Removed After Second Train Ran Over It
Mysuru: Prema B was always in a hurry . Every morning, she would rush on to the platform just before the 7.25am 56204 Mysuru-Chamarajanagar train chugged into the Chamarajapuram station.
On Tuesday, she came under the train at the manned level crossing gate. Prema tried to cross the railway gate before the train from Mysuru came in, but was crushed her to death. The train dragged her along, and parts of her body were strewn across the rail
Very said to see the very slow response by Railway police...
Agree. Very slow response by authorities. Same happened in Chennai a few days back. The lady who got murdered at Nungambakkam Station, lied dead for hours on the platform. Sad but true.
This is not true.. In Chennai case, it was a murder. With in few minute railway police has reached the spot, followed by state police.Even medical team has reached the spot and confirmed her death. Body was there for forensic team to come and collect the evidence which were needed. It took time for them to come and do the process. Media made big story out of this and spread such news. Yesterday's hindu news paper clarified the issue.
Thanks for updating the news about Chennai murder. We only go by the news that is out in the media. So you have done a very good thing by correcting the news and I appreciate the same.

Proposal to decongest Mysore railway station approved by Railway Board
Raj Kumar Lal (right) took charge from the outgoing Divisional Railway Manager Vinod Kumar in Mysore on Friday.—PHOTO: M.A. SRIRAM Mysore will have a second railway terminus at Belagola to keep pace with the rapid expansion of the city and to increase rail connectivity with rest of India.A proposal submitted by the Mysore Division has been accepted and is expected to make its way to the ‘pink book’ which, in railway parlance, means list of approved projects by the Railway Board and is bound to be executed.
This is a hell of an idea. How will the passengers reach belagola in the first place. Its not even in Mysore district, way too far, no connecting road, no public transport, does not fall in rapaid bus transit corridor. It takes alteast an hour to reach Mysore from there. In the name of decongesting this will cause lot of inconvenience to passengers. It should be used as coach maintenance yard with pit lines and not a terminal specially for HAS/ASK bound train. NWT/CMNR trains can start as they will pass through Mysore Jn.
This is a hell of an idea. How will the passengers reach belagola in the first place. Funny part is its not even in Mysore district but is proposed second terminal for Mysore station. Its way too far, has no connecting road, no public transport, does not fall in rapaid bus transit corridor, inaccessible to 70% of population through public transport. Autos will charge alteast 300 rupees to Mysore from there. It takes an hour to reach Mysore from there. In the name of decongesting this will cause lot of inconvenience to passengers. Its not a practical solution. It should be used as coach maintenance yard with pit lines and not a terminal specially for HAS/ASK bound train. NWT/CMNR trains can start as they will pass through Mysore Jn.
Yes.No idea how such decisions are being taken without discussion with local rail users.As you rightly said due to inconvenience and expenses towards commuting to II terminal( fr ASK trains) the proposal could be limited to maintenance activity.
The scenario after track doubling completion is to be addressed.
A good move by SWR. However passengers may feel difficulty in getting to and fro Belagola rly station as connectivity either by AUTO or CITY bus is poor now. This has to be improved once Belagola terminal becomes operational.It is matter of another 5 years.
Present plan doesnt look that convincing as only Hassan bound trains will start from Belagola and Bangalore bound trains cant start from here owing to track alignment. Chamarajnagar bound trains will pass via Mysore even if started from Belagola. Better to develop pit lanes for maintenance activity at Belagola for long distance trains and develop Ashokapuram as second terminal.
