Many passengers reached the platform putting their lives at risk
Passengers with disabilities, elderly and children face more problems
The signal failed on the outer shortly before the Jan Shatabdi Express arriving from New Delhi reached Doon station. The loco pilot immediately applied the brakes and stopped the train on the outer. Passengers fell into confusion as the train suddenly stopped before the station. With this, the Mussoorie Express was also able to leave by an hour.
The Janshatabdi Express, which reached Dehradun at around 9:10 pm, was running ahead of its schedule. Some time before the station, the train did not get the signal to proceed. After some time, the control from the loco contacted them wirelessly and found that the signals had failed. Railway officials were busy trying to green the red signal, but it did not go right for a long time.
Due to this, the passengers also started protesting. Some passengers risked their lives by taking the goods from the standing train, and got down and reached the platform on foot on the tracks. Due to this, the elderly, the sick, the disabled and the passengers with small children and belongings had to face a lot of problems.
This fourth event
On the other hand, due to lack of signal, the Janshatabdi Express could not be transported on the platform, then the Mussoorie Express leaving to Delhi at around 9:20 pm from Doon also had to stand on the platform for a long time. This also caused problems for passengers of Mussoorie Express.
After about an hour, after bringing the Janshatabdi Express on the number three platform, the Mussoorie Express could be dispatched from number two. Due to this, there was a lot of anger among the passengers of both trains towards the railways.
It is noteworthy that in the last 10 days, this is the fourth incident of the trains not leaving on time and standing halfway due to signal, engine failure, and power failure. Station director Ganesh Chand Thakur was called on mobile on Friday night to know the railway’s side in this regard, but he could not be contacted.
