Ensuring Passenger Safety: Loco Pilot’s Quick Action Prevents Major Disaster From Vande India Disaster
In a stunning display of vigilance and quick thinking, the Loco Pilot of the Udaipur-Jaipur Vande Bharat Express averted a potentially catastrophic incident on the morning of October 2nd.
A Dangerous Encounter
The incident unfolded between Gangrar and Soniana railway stations in the Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan at around 9.53 a.m., raising concerns of possible sabotage.
As the train passed Gangrar, Loco Pilot observed an alarming sight on the tracks – two iron rods, each approximately one foot long, were maliciously placed on the rails. These iron rods were affixed to a joggle plate, a component used for connecting railway tracks. Additionally, stones had been deliberately stacked on the rails, posing a grave danger to the passengers on board.
This could have been disastrous !!
