Not much time has passed when the Amritsar rail tragedy took place and now devotees were seen standing on the railway tracks over the Sirhind Canal during Chhath Puja. Be it district administration or people, it seems that no one has learnt any lesson from the mishap that took place nearly a month back.

Many people were crushed under a train while watching the Dussehra festivities by standing on the rail tracks.
Railway Police Force (RPF) personnel were absent from the spot as a similar mishap was averted on Tuesday as a large number of people were standing on the railway track when a train passed from there. The people moved aside in the nick of time.

Deputy Commissioner Praneet said, “This is the property of the Railways. They did not bring this matter to our notice otherwise we could have made proper arrangements.”

Bathinda RPF commandant Inspector Jugraj Singh said, “This railway brigade comes under Ferozepur division so I can’t say anything on this. Another brigade which comes under our area, we have deployed our personnel there since yesterday.”

SSP Bathinda Dr Nanak Singh said, “As soon as we got the information today we sent a police team and got the people removed from the railway tracks.”
