and, on questioning, found the ganja hidden in his shoulder bag. The RPF has intensified vigil against the movement of drugs and contraband through the Palakkad Junction Railway Station, which is the rail gateway from other States to Kerala.
The RPF seized unaccounted cash of ₹70 lakh from two passengers hailing from Mongam in Malappuram district during a check on Sunday.
Shihab, 30, and Shaheed, 35, were arrested with the money from the general compartment of the Chennai-Mangaluru Express.

The Chennai-Mangalore Mail (train number 12601) was
operated with an apparent malfunctioning of the brakes of one of the
coaches on Saturday-Sunday, multiple sources confirmed to TOI. The train

late.
Railway employees including senior officials said the train had undergone
a routine overhaul and a complete maintenance check at the Permabur
carriage workshop only recently. "As soon as the train started from
Chennai, the loco pilot sensed that the 'soft braking' was not working
adequately. The train was examined at Arakkonam and Katpadi and it was
slowly run to Mangalore," said a source.
Officials, however, did not explain why the train was allowed to operate with the problem. "During examination, it was found
that the dust filter of the air pressure brake in one of the coaches was not removed before connecting it. This caused variance
while applying brakes. If the loco pilot tried to apply the brakes softly, it wouldn't have stopped as required," said a source.
Loco pilots said a similar problem had resulted in a South Central Railway train not stopping at a red signal two years ago.
"Luckily there was no accident. This is an indication of poor shop-floor work as well as carelessness in testing at the Perambur
workshop platform," said a senior official who confirmed the incident.
Three trains to operate with the coaches daily
Southern Railway’s Palakkad Division on Friday introduced the sixth Utkrisht rake in the rake links maintained at Mangaluru Central.
With the introduction of the new rake, the services of Train 16603/16604 Mangaluru Central - Thiruvananthapuram Maveli Express; Train 12602 Mangaluru Central – Chennai Central Mail, and Train 22637 Chennai Central- Mangaluru Central Express will operate with Utkrisht coaches daily, said an official release here.

Facilities
Utkrisht coaches comprise several state-of-the-art passenger-friendly facilities, including polyurethane (PU) painting with a new colour scheme with apricot on the main body and red at the ends; epoxy flooring in toilets to avoid water stagnation and improved cleanliness; hydrophobic coating in wash basins; double acting doors inside AC coaches; LED lighting; toilet occupation indication board in AC coaches; auto janitors; health faucet in toilets; digital clock in AC coaches; coach indicators inside coaches; quality coach indication boards; improved belly boards on luggage-cum-brake van coaches; Standard Braille Signage; provision of fire extinguishers in reserved coaches, and bio-toilets in all coaches.
At present, four rakes are being used to maintain the link of the Maveli Express. Conversion of other three rakes will be completed in a phased manner. Refurbishing of coaches to Utkrisht standard was carried out at Southern Railway work shops - Carriage Works, Perambur and in Golden Rock Workshop, Ponmalai, Tiruchchirpapalli.
