Refrain from selfies near railway: India
    2018-January-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Indian railway ministry has urged people in the country to avoid taking selfies and doing stunts near railway tracks, officials said Friday.

This came after a couple of videos emerged last week on the social media where youth were seen doing stunts and taking selfies, endangering their lives. Selfie craze has taken several lives in India and the world.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal in a message urged people to avoid such acts saying that he was disheartened by the accidents that happened while taking selfies and doing stunts in the last few days.

“I urge all of you not to risk your lives, instead, channel our energy in more productive areas and help in building a New India,” Goyal said.

Along with the message, the ministry has also issued a number of posters with references from popular Bollywood songs like “Zindagi maut na banjaye sambhalo yaaron” (Be cautious, life can turn into death) from the film “Sarfarosh,” accompanied with images of people leaning out of trains.

In the video of the Hyderabad incident, which has gone viral on social media, a man identified as Siva is seen standing on the edge of the railway tracks holding up his phone with its front camera facing him and a train can be seen approaching him from behind.

Railway officials are seen cautioning him to move away while he asks them for a minute more. He was eventually hit by the train and badly injured.

A case under 147 IR Act and trespassing has been registered against him.
