Railways Educating Public To Avoid Such Dangerous Acts

This is not the first time in the country the Vande Bharat Express train has been targeted. Similar incidents occurred in other parts of the country. However, no passengers have been harmed in any of the incidents so far.

Indian Railways, especially East Coast Railway (ECoR) is consistently making drives to educate the public, especially those residing near areas of rail lines, not to throw stones on trains that could harm passengers.

However, the incidents of stone pelting on the train have continued to occur despite the efforts of the Indian Railways and law enforcement agencies to prevent them.
