इटारसी। मुंबई जाने के लिए पाटलीपुत्र लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनल (12142) ट्रेन में 25 मार्च को सवार हुए जबलपुर के सुमित पिता रघुनाथ काछी ने प्यास लगने पर एक अन्य यात्री की बोतल का पानी पी लिया। इससे नाराज पटना के तीन युवकों ने सुमित को ट्रेन की खिड़की के बाहर लटकाकर बेरहमी से पीटा। ट्रेन के बाहर लटके पीड़ित युवक को इटारसी स्टेशन पर वेंडरों ने बचाया।
पीड़ित युवक ने जीआरपी को बताया था कि उसे जबलपुर से इटारसी तक लटकाकर पीटा गया। लेकिन पुलिस ने उसकी बात को खारिज करते हुए पटना के विक्की पिता गोपाल, रवि पिता शंभु प्रसाद व बलराम पिता प्रभुप्रसाद पर मामूली धाराओं में केस दर्ज किया था।

अब सोमवार को उस घटना का दिल दहला देने वाला वीडियो सामने आया तो जीआरपी टीआई दुष्यंत जोशी का कहना है कि धाराएं बढ़ाई जाएंगी। इस वीडियो में पीड़ित को खिड़की के बाहर पैर के पंजों से बंधा दिख रहा है। ट्रेन के इटारसी स्टेशन पर रूकने से पहले ही उसे मारने के लिए एस-2 कोच से बाहर निकले युवक उसे बेल्ट से पीटने लगते हैं।
पीड़ित ने बताया कि जबलपुर से इटारसी तक उसे खिड़की के बाहर लटकाकर लाए। जहां-जहां ट्रेन रूकी, मुझे पीटा गया। वहीं शासकीय अधिवक्‍ता अजयप्रकाश श्रीवास्तव का कहना है कि इस प्रकरण में धारा 307 तो लगनी ही थी। इसके अलावा अन्य धाराएं जैसे मानसिक रूप से प्रताड़ित करने की भी दर्ज होनी चाहिए।
परीक्षा देने जा रहे थे आरोपी युवक, पीड़ित मुुंबई में करता है काम:
जबलपुर निवासी और मुंबई में पांच हजार की नौकरी करने वाले सुमित काछी को पटना के जिन तीन युवकों ने पीटा था, वे ईएसआई की परीक्षा देने पटना से मुंबई जा रहे थे। पीड़ित सुमित जबलपुर से सवार हुआ था। ट्रेन कुछ ही आगे बढ़ी थी कि युवक ने प्यास लगने पर पटना के युवकों का पानी पी लिया था।

KOCHI: The state human rights commission chairman (SHRC) Justice J B Koshy has said that the railways would have to pay compensation for accidents caused in the absence of platform at stations .
He said railway officials are responsible if passengers have to get down from the train in places where there is no platform. It would be better if the railways ensured that the trains stopped within the platform area.
"Urgent measures should be taken to ensure that all trains stop within the concrete zone on platforms," said Koshy.

The observations were made based on a complaint filed by commuters travelling on the Ernakulam-Kottayam passenger (Train no 56385). The train departs from Ernakulam Junction at 7.10am and reaches Ettumanoor at 8:45am. Majority of the passengers are staff of MG university and nearby institutions. There are also passengers who are heading to the Medical College hospital. Getting down from the train at Ettumanoor became difficult after the train timings were changed. Both the passenger train and Venad Express towards Shoranur reach the station around the same time. There is only one platform in the station and the Venad Express halts here. The passenger train halts at the second track where there is no platform.
Commuters of the express train have to get off as soon as the train reaches the station. If a person slips a footstep, he would fall straight away into the pit. If they let the train cross the Kuruppanthara station, the Ernakulam-Kottayam passenger will be able to stop only on platform one as there is only one platform at the Ettumanoor station.
The commission had sought an explanation from the divisional manager. The railway officials replied that for the time-being the passenger train would be allowed to halt for two more minutes on the platform of Ettumanoor station.
