Can you de­tect ob­jects on tracks, HC asks rail­ways

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: The Bom­bay high court on Fri­day di­rected the rail­ways to in­form within three weeks whether it has a mech­a­nism to find out in ad­vance if any for­eign ob­ject has been placed on tracks. There were cer­tain in­stances in the past where the mo­tor­man had to brake to avert a dis­as­ter, the HC had ob­served last March, when it first passed the or­der.

The HC was hear­ing a PIL by Sameer Zaveri for bet­ter safety on rail­way tracks. His coun­sel Jamshed Mistry pointed out that de­spite an ear­lier or­der to con­struct a wall along both sides of the tracks, there has been no com­pli­ance. The HC asked rail­ways where a bound­ary wall was needed im­me­di­ately and the progress on the pro­posal, so far.
