'Yamraj' on Railway tracks! Western Railway finds hilarious trick to stop people from trespassing

Indian Railways has warned commuters several times not to cross platforms through railway tracks because it is risky and impose hefty fines for breaking the rules. But, passengers cross the tracks illegally. To curb such dangerous acts, Western Railways has come up with a creative idea to stop trespassing on railway tracks.

On Thursday, the Western Railways department has launched an awareness campaign against trespassing in which a man dressed as ‘Yamraj’, the God of Death, stopped people from violating the rule.

As many accidents have been reported where people have put their lives in danger and even died because of crossing tracks illegally.


"Do not cross the track unauthorizedly, it can be fatal. If you cross the track in an unauthorized way, then Yamraj is standing in front of you. In Mumbai, Western Railways in collaboration with the RPF is making people aware through the character of 'Yamraj'," the Western Railways tweeted.

“This Yamraj Ji saves lives. He catches people who are endangering their lives by trespassing the railway tracks, but to save them. This Yamraj picks people to release them safely. Please do NOT cross tracks, it's dangerous,” Western Railway captioned a video.


In another video, a man can be seen walking on the tracks gets down on his knees as soon as he sees the 'Yamraj'. When the man joins his hands to pray to 'Yamraj', he is picked up and returned to safety.


Check out how netizens reacted over this step of Western Railways:
