  • Until the railways are fenced within the populated areas, these incidents are bound to happen. It is high time that Pakistan Railways launches project to fence its right of ways along the tracks in city limits. SCP must take notice if it holds any regard for the lives of Pakistani people.

    • Siam was an adult and should have known better. Even if the tracks are fenced he could have climbed over. The fault squarely lies with him and cost him his life.
