THE RAILWAY Protection Force (RPF) on Saturday arrested two persons for allegedly throwing a two-wheeler on railway tracks in Pune. The two-wheeler, after being thrown, came under the engine of the Pune-Danapur Express and got dragged for about 17km.
RPF officials said on June 11, one Akash Guddavar (35), a resident of Patas, along with another man, allegedly under the influence of alcohol, threw the two-wheeler on the tracks at Khutbav station in Patas.
Around 9 pm, the Pune-Danapur train left Pune station. After sometime, while crossing the Khutbav station, the two-wheeler came under the train’s engine and got dragged. Eventually, the driver realised some unusual movements under the train and applied brakes to prevent a mishap.
The RPF initiated a probe into the matter. RPF Pune Divisional Security Commissioner Uday Singh Pawar said the duo have been arrested after an offence against them was lodged at the RPF’s Loni station.
