Bhubaneswar: While reports snatching of food items by passengers of Shramik Special trains at Railway stations surfaced, the East Coast Railway has taken a decision to strengthen security at stations and increase RPF presence on platforms.
As per the revised steps, food will be distributed by IRCTC catering contractor staff under watchful eyes of RPF and TTEs. This system will be implemented with immediate effect.
The ECoR also stated that the indiscipline and unruly behavior by passengers will not be ignored.
Reportedly, the food items were served to migrant passengers coach-wise on nominated platforms at nominated stations.
