DRDO Scientist Brutally Assaulted By Miscreants At New Delhi Railway Station In Front of RPF Personnels

What can be termed as total apathy on part of the railway administration a young scientist from Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) was beaten by three persons in broad day light at the busiest platform number 16 at New Delhi Railway station on Wednesday afternoon. While the three men assaulted the young scientist, Railway Protection Force (RPF) officials stationed there stood as mute spectators. When Governance Now (the reporter was present on the spot at the time of assault) asked the RPF men to take action and intervene, they said ‘it’s not their job’.

The insensitivity shown by the RPF and the general public puts a big question mark over the railway security.

When the deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Railways (Crime) was contacted over WhatsApp, the DSP responded in a rather lukewarm manner by sending a reply that just said “Ok”. A day after the incident which was first reported by Governance Now, office of MoS, Railways, Manoj Sinha took cognizance of the entire episode and IG (Railways) was asked to investigate the matter.
