1025 people caught using coaches reserved for disabled In Mumbai in just one week
Despite awareness campaigns, rules and actions, the number of commuters using coaches reserved for the disabled people is on a rise in Mumbai.
In a special 7 day campaign the government railway police has arrested a total of 1,025 such commuters.
The unauthorized travellers were caught by GRP and handed over to the Railway Protection Force.
They were then charged under the Indian Railways Act with a penalty of Rs 500.
Even female passengers have been found to misuse the disabled coaches.
When other people get into the coaches for disabled people, there is no place left for those who really need it.
