MUMBAI: Western Railway (WR) has relaunched their ‘Yamraj’ campaign to discourage track crossing. As part of the campaign, an RPF jawan dresses up as the god of death and catches passengers crossing the tracks, often letting them go after a sermon. The idea is to spread awareness about the dangers of track crossing.
The campaign has been launched at Bandra, Andheri, Ram Mandir, Malad and Borivli stations. The RPF jawan dressed as ‘Yamraj’ also sensitises people living in slum colonies dotting the tracks, as they are most likely to cross tracks. On an average, 2,500 lives are lost annually on Mumbai railways. A majority of them are a result of track crossing.
