RAJKOT: A lion got injured in a railway accident near Ucchaya village in Amreli district on Tuesday morning. The lion got injured in leg and is in the care centre for primary treatment. He might be taken to Sakkarbaug zoo for further treatment.
The lion was spotted on the route connecting port Pivavav where approximately over two dozen goods trains pass through everyday.
Lions sightings are casual near Pipavav and in past, many of them have been crushed to death by speeding trains.
trackers have been instructed to keep a watch on their movement while trains are passing. If a lion is spotted on the track, they have to immediately inform the authority to stop the train.
Even the train drivers are instructed to go in low speed and apply breaks if they see a lion on the track.
Railway officials and forest department organise meetings at regular intervals to discuss about avoiding such accidents.

INDIA: Regular operation of electrically-hauled double-stack container trains on the Indian Railways network began on June 10, with the start of electric haulage on the 270 km Palanpur – Botad section of the Western Railway.
IR began exploring the feasibility of running double-stack trains under overhead electrification in 2008, as part of its planning for the Dedicated Freight Corridors.
In order to allow the use of conventional flat wagons rather than well wagons, it was decided to look at raising the contact wire height. Two WAG-7 electric locomotives fitted with high-reach pantographs were
tested on the 35 km Jakhapura – Tumka section of the East Coast Railway which had been equipped with high-rise overhead line equipment.
Following the trials, IR settled on a contact wire height of 7 450 mm and a catenary height of 8 650 mm, with a tension of 10 kN as the standard for its DFC electrification. Wiring of the Western DFC is now underway, with electric operation on the Rewari – Madar section expected to begin shortly.
IR subsequently decided to install high-rise OLE on the 1 400 km conventional line between the key freight hub at Rewari southwest of the capital and the port of Pipavav in Gujurat, which is already being used by diesel-hauled double-stack trains. Around 70% of the wiring on this route has now been commissioned, with multiple installation teams at work as part of the national electrification campaign.
IR’s Executive Director, Railway Electrification, Bhupender Singh Bodh told Railway Gazette International that ‘all efforts are on to achieve through electric operation of double-stack trains from New Delhi to Pipavav by the third quarter of the current financial year’. This would see the work completed by the end of 2020. However, he reported that ‘progress has been severely affected by workforce constraints and supply chain issues’ as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Increasing loading limit to transport double the amount of goods, Railways successfully operates a double stack container train from Palanpur to Botad in Gujarat.

The State Government on Monday told the Gujarat High Court it has so far constructed 81.06 kilometres of chain-link fencing on both sides of a railway line passing through lion habitat in Amreli district to prevent the big cats from being run over by trains.
In an affidavit submitted to the division bench of Justice SR Brahmbhatt and Justice AP Thaker, the State Government said it has taken a host of measures to curb unnatural deaths of Asiatic lions.
The Government said 260.7 km railway track from Pipavav port to Surendranagar passes through
lion habitat in Amreli district, adding that it had so far completed 81.06 chain-link fences on this route.
The High Court had taken suo motu cognisance of the State Government's disclosure in the assembly last year that 184 lions, lionesses and cubs died in 2016 and 2017, with 32 of them dying of "unnatural" causes.
The Gujarat High Court had sought explanations from the Centre and the State Government.
In its affidavit, the Government said it has so far constructed 37,201 parapets on open wells, including 703 in 2019-20, to prevent lions from falling into them.
Tough measures have been initiated against illegal lion shows also, and 40 cases were registered against 134 offenders since 2016, with four cases lodged this year alone, the State Government told the High Court.

Shifting rail tracks out of the Gir forest and shutting down all stone quarries located around it are some of the steps suggested to save lions in a report submitted to the Gujarat High Court Thursday.The Gir Wildlife Sanctuary, part of the forest spread across several Gujarat districts, is the last abode of Asiatic lions in the world.The steps were suggested in the report submitted to the division bench of Justices S R Brahmbhatt and A P Thaker by senior advocate Hemang Shah, who was appointed amicus curiae in the matter by the HC last year when it admitted a PIL over the issue of death of Gir lions.After taking into consideration the findings of the report, the bench asked the state government to file its reply and posted the matter for further hearing on July 11.In his report, Shah pointed out that lions are being run over by trains which...
ply through the forest area.He said at least 20 goods trains pass through the forest area and most of them run during night, a time when lions come out for hunting and try to cross the tracks.Shah stated that a suggestion, made earlier by a lawyer, to construct elevated corridor for trains inside the forest, is not feasible.Construction of such a structure would create noise and air pollution and eventually "drive lions out of the forest", the amicus curiae noted in his report."The only option is to shift the railway tracks out of the forest area and beyond the 10 km zone. These railway tracks are used for transporting containers to Pipavav Port (in Amreli district)."Thus, commercial activity needs to take a back seat while ensuring complete protection of lions," the report said.He suggested that trains on this route must be stopped during the night for the safety of lions.Shah pointed out that though the Railway authorities had issued instructions to regulate the speed of the trains, they are still plying "at more than 60 km an hour".Shah also suggested putting GPS-based radio collars on lions to keep a watch on their movements and alert the field staff whenever they come close to the tracks.Expressing concern over the mining activity near Mitiyala Wildlife Sanctuary of the Gir forest, Shah said stone quarries are causing water and air pollution.He said the owners of these quarries had not constructed protection walls to prevent lions from falling into deep pits dug up inside their premises."It is quite surprising as to how these entities have 'managed' to secure permissions and approvals. All such stone quarry sites should be closed down with immediate effect, irrespective of their permissions and approvals. All such approvals should be cancelled with immediate effect" the report said.According to the 2015 census, there were 523 lions in the Gir forest.The Gujarat government had last year claimed that their number had gone over 600.

Three Asiatic lions were killed in the Gir forest division in Gujarat's Amreli district when a train ran over them on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday. The lion carcasses were found on the railway tracks in the Borala village early on Tuesday morning, forest officials said."A pride of six lions was passing by the railway track when a goods train crossed the track and killed three of them at around 12:45 am," Dushyant Vasavada, Chief Conservator of Forests of Junagadh Wildlife Circle, told NDTV. The goods train was going from Botad to Pipavav.Two male lions and one lioness, between the age of 1.5 and 2 years, were killed in the accident, Mr Vasavada said. He added that a probe is on in the incident. "We are trying to get details on the train speed, negligence of trackers and forest staff. Stringent action will be taken against the defaulters," he said.At...
least 30 lions have died in Gir forest division since September. Following the outbreak of CDV infection in September, 36 lions were captured and shifted to three rescue centres as a precautionary measure. Twenty-three big cats had died in Gir in a short span of three weeks in September.
