Mumbai railway police to start campaign against illegal commuters on disabled coaches

Following a series of complaints from disabled commuters about government officials and uniformed men (police, Central Industrial Security Forces and so on) travelling in coaches reserved for the handicapped, the Government Railway Police from Central Railways has decided to start a massive drive against such illegal commuting.

According to Samadhan Pawar, deputy commissioner of police (GRP) central railway, the number of able-bodied people commuting in handicapped coaches has not come down despite initiating action against them. “We have now decided to begin a publicity campaign asking such people to desist from entering the disabled coach,” he said.
