It seems that the railway officials are trying to go like the airport way to full-proofed vigilance to its passengers. CPRO of Northern Railway, S K Sharma said, "The home ministry has asked us to ensure that every passenger is frisked and every luggage is checked before it enters the main platforms."
"However, during evening rush hours, it is important that passengers report early to ensure hassle-free entries," added Sharma.
Citing the recent terror attack in Mumbai, the home ministry has beefed up security in the entire nation. Indian Railways again is expecting a huge number of travellers during the upcoming festival times which will start from Ganesh Puja on Sep 1.
The ministry also wants to ensure the railway travellers about their safety before the independence day. Sharma also informed, "This is the beginning and it will get many more scanners. We have shifted the parcel-handling section to the Paharganj side and repaired the scanner machine."
