HAWKERS ENCROACH FOOT-OVER BRIDGES AT KURLA STATION DESPITE HIGH COURT ORDER

The Mumbai high court orders are being clearly violated at the Kurla railway station where illegal hawkers seem to have come back on the foot-overbridges and platforms. It maybe recalled that a week back the Mumbai high court had directed the Central and Western railways to remove all illegal hawkers from foot-overbridges and platforms at stations across the city, warning the railway authorities that failure to comply with it would invite suo motu action against the top officers of the railways. The High Court further reinstated that illegal hawkers were not entitled to any protection and that it was the duty of the railways to ensure the security of commuters using the stations. The common man has to put to great inconvenience as foot-overbridges are mostly crowded with hawkers. But looks like the railway authorities followed this order for namesake, as the illegal hawkers – which were removed for a day or two – were seen back on foot-over bridges and platforms at the Kurla railway station with the Government Railway Police and the Railway Police Force taking any action.
