LAHORE: The Pakistan Railways (PR) has launched a crackdown on the trespassers across the country and registered 691 cases against several people for crossing the rail track on foot, by motorbikes, cars or other transport at other than the designated / authorised points in violation of the laws.

Since the crackdown will continue for an indefinite period, the railway police in collaboration with the staff deputed at various major railway stations took 50 people into custody for trespassing the rail track on various spots on Thursday.

“Trespassing is a crime that can put anyone’s life in danger. So the people must aware of this and are advised to cross the rail track at the designated / authorised points,” Divisional Superintendent (PR Lahore Division) Nasir Khaliley said while inspecting Lahore and other stations in his division. “I think putting yours and others lives in danger is a heinous crime,” he added.
