കോഴിക്കോട്: ഓടിക്കൊണ്ടിരുന്ന തീവണ്ടിയുടെ എന്ജിന് കേടായി പുക ഉയര്ന്നത് പരിഭ്രാന്തി പരത്തി. ഞായറാഴ്ച ഉച്ചയ്ക്ക് ആറാം റെയില്വേ ഗേറ്റിന് സമീപം കണ്ണൂര് പാസഞ്ചര് തീവണ്ടിയുടെ എന്ജിനില് നിന്നാണ് പുക ഉയര്ന്നത്. വണ്ടി നിര്ത്തിയിട്ടതോടെ അരമണിക്കൂറോളം യാത്ര തടസ്സപ്പെട്ടു. വെള്ളയില് റെയില്വേ സ്റ്റേഷനില് നിന്ന് ഉച്ചയ്ക്ക് രണ്ടരയ്ക്ക് വണ്ടി പുറപ്പെട്ട ഉടനെയാണ് എന്ജിനില് നിന്ന് പുക ഉയര്ന്നത്. എന്ജിന് കേടായതാണ് കാരണമെന്ന് അധികൃതര് അറിയിച്ചു. കറുത്ത പുക പരിസരത്താകെ വ്യാപിച്ചതോടെ യാത്രക്കാരും നാട്ടുകാരും പരിഭ്രാന്തരായി. ഇതിനിടെ തീവണ്ടിക്ക് തീപിടിച്ചെന്നും പ്രചാരണം നടന്നു. യാത്രക്കാരില് ചിലര് ഇതോടെ തീവണ്ടിയാത്ര ഉപേക്ഷിച്ച് കണ്ണൂരിലേക്ക് ബസ് കയറി. അരമണിക്കൂര് കഴിഞ്ഞാണ് വണ്ടി നീങ്ങിയത്. പിന്നീട് വെസ്റ്റ്ഹില് റെയില്വേ സ്റ്റേഷനില്നിന്ന് എന്ജിന് മാറ്റി യാത്ര തുടര്ന്നു. ആറാം ഗേറ്റിന് മുമ്പില് വണ്ടി നിര്ത്തിയിട്ടതിനാല് ഈ സമയമത്രയും ഇതുവഴിയുള്ള ഗതാഗതവും മുടങ്ങി.

There is growing demand for more facilities at the Vellayil railway station in view of the increase in number of travellers using the station. With more and more residential flats and individual housing units coming up in the area, there has been a spurt in the number of travellers using the station. However, railway authorities are yet to respond to representations from local people to improve facilities at the station.Rail passengers point out that increasing the length of the platform at the station is an urgent necessity. As the platform is not long enough, four or five compartments of the trains stopping at the station lie outside the platform so that travellers have to get into the train from amid green vegetation and thick bushes outside the platform. The station is also not properly lit and does not have enough seating arrangement.The people have demanded stops for Mangalore-Coimbatore and Coimbatore-Mangalore trains...
(train numbers 56323 and 56324) at Vellayil. The facility for getting tickets to all stations of Southern Railways from Vellayil station and a foot overbridge to are among other demands.

The Vellayil railway station, poor cousin to the district’s main station, has become a hub for antisocial activities and a constant source of headache for those in the neighbourhood.
Located in the major residential areas of Nadakkavu and Vellayil in the city, the station platforms are home to unidentified persons, tipplers, substance abusers, and street harassers thanks to the lack of regular night patrolling by the police.
G. Sparjan Kumar, City Police Commissioner, told The Hindu on Sunday that it is “difficult” to keep a tab on every problem of the city.
we will take this up and ensure night-patrolling,” he said. But promises apart, residents say they live in constant fear. “We cannot approach these people lying around on the platforms directly because they may identify us and our families and do something drastic. Most of them lie there, passed out. We keep a watch on them because we are scared for the safety of our children,” Syed Kamal, convenor of Ayalppakam, a collective of residents whose houses are directly located behind the station platform on the eastern side.
The elevated position of the railway station platform provides anti-socials a clear view inside the houses of the residents.
On October 2, two packets of ganja weighing a kg were found while cleaning the railway station premises near the sixth railway gate. Two theft cases and one attempted burglary, including one vehicle lifting, were reported recently from the vicinity. A series of four burglaries were reported in the residential area over a year ago.
Since there are no night trains stopping at Vellayil, all the lights on the two platforms are switched off after 9 p.m., leaving the entire place dark.
“Last week, two thefts were reported from my neighbourhood. A drug pusher was picked up from the railway station after a resident complained to the police. In the night, we often hear loud drunk arguments and abuses from the platforms. Miscreants use the waiting sheds at the railway station for drunk brawls. We cannot see a thing as there is no light. To make matters worse, Railways do not clear the thick bush growing on the platforms. This is used as a cover by people to hide liquor bottles and ganja packets,” A. Jayaprakash, secretary, Choyunni Master Road Residents Association on the western side, said.
Anti-social elements also camp at the four railway quarters abandoned by Railways years ago. Residents cleared the undergrowth in the quarters after the anti-social used the place for immoral trafficking and drug abuse. Students walking to and fro from the nearby Providence Girls’ Higher Secondary School too have to face street harassers and drunkards on the platforms.
With hardly any consistent help from the police, residents have now taken it upon themselves to patrol the platforms during the nights.
“On Saturday, we found a group getting ready to start a booze party at 12 a.m. and stopped them. We are not aware of the identity of persons loitering on the premises. Some of them hop off a train, have a drinking session on the platform and leave by the next train,” Mr. Jayaprakash said.
