In an unprecedented step and may be for the first time in India, Government Railway Police of Agra division has sent 109 persons to jail for 24 hours as they were found urinating on the railway property, including platform, tracks parking lot.

These people were later released after paying a fine ranging from Rs 100 to Rs 500 depending on the gravity of the act of creating a public nuisance.

Disgusted with the stink of urine and ugly red pan stains due to spitting in every nook and corner at stations and other railway properties, senior superintendent of police, GRP, Gopeshnath Khanna ordered his men to conduct a drive against such miscreants and penalize them for public nuisance.

The drive was conducted over a 48-hour period across 12 stations of GRP, Agra division. As many as 109 people were nabbed. Of these 27 were caught in the act on Friday.

The offenders were charged under Section 34 of the Police Act (Punishment for certain offences such as inconvenience, annoyance to passengers or residents in public places, roads, etc).

The Logical Indian applauds the drive started by railway police(Agra) and we wish each and every state follows this. At the same time, govt. should also emphasise on building public urinals and toilets.
