    What a senseless vile act depriving 3 children of their father and a husband to his wife. What on earth do they gain out of someone's misery? Sad reflection of the deep trench the society has sunk into.

    I wonder if the ones who threads the stone at this person,really know the aftermath that has occurred

    What a tragedy. The thrower will get it back on his head

    I presume Anupam was referring to the business side . The bus operators have always looked at Trains as a threat to their survival

    I thought stone throwing has been completely stopped by law enforcing authorities but it seems to be on-going. It needs a full stop immediately.

    Find out the reason for stone throwing at trains. Who is upset with North bound trains?

    Solution is to introduce fully windowed door closed stock like in the west. This will ensure passengers safety and security.

    Proof that the population in this country is genetically thugs.

    This is horrible. Better wear head protection gear on trains. Scary

    I recall there was stone throwing incidences in southern highway sometime back. What the hell is wrong with people?

    Sudun Monday, 08 August 2016 12:50 PM

    Don't be an idiot Anupam. The one who is responsible probably doesn't know what train it was. You fools are always trying to make racial distress among people.

    cheers Monday, 08 August 2016 01:15 PM

    very sad the culprit should be arrested and should given the same treatment

    hesh Monday, 08 August 2016 02:07 PM

    Can't blame the authorities, they can't monitor every inch of the railway

    Thilak Monday, 08 August 2016 02:41 PM

    Fix CCTV Cameras in such Trains to find out how throws the stone into the train.
