East Coast Railway (ECoR) authorities have suspended cleaning supervisor of Konark Express after Orissa High Court judge Biswanath Rath disembarked the train over foul smell of a dead rodent inside his compartment on November 3.
A disciplinary action against the supervisor has been initiated with serving of a chargesheet by the authorities of Khurda Road division.
Earlier, the Orissa High Court judge had got down from the train at Berhampur station after facing severe inconvenience due to the pungent smell inside the A1 coach.
ECoR has very bad maintenance.
Such things happen with normal pax also
Why action is taken only when High Court judge travelled?
Probably because he got down, then registered a complaint and because he was a judge obviously issue got highlighted.
