Even though regular train services remain suspended in India due to the coronavirus pandemic, some railway stations are not letting their guards down. Keeping the safety of passengers in mind, KSR Bengaluru station of South Western Railway has, therefore, installed a foot-operated hand wash kiosk as a precautionary measure.
Pictures of the multi-functional touch-free hand wash kiosk, which dispenses both water and soap, have been shared by the official Twitter handle of the Railway Ministry along with a caption that reads, “Safety is in our hands!”
Our Safety is in our hands!
