Rail Passengers Hospitalized Due To Stinking Blankets & Bedrolls: Train Stopped Due To Medical Emergency

Passengers in the AC B5 coach of the Lucknow-Varanasi Krishak Express (15008) were given stinking bedrolls and blankets. The stench of the used blankets was such that three passengers — including a 70-year-old man and two women — of the coach felt nauseous and even got sick.

Railway Stopped for 30 Minutes For Medical Emergency

These three passengers, who had boarded the train at Lucknow’s Charbagh railway station, were attended to by a team of railway doctors at the Badshahnagar station where the train was stopped for 30 minutes for a medical emergency.

Pankaj Singh, chief public relations officer of North-Eastern Railway (NER) “After the passengers complained to the supervisor, the blankets and bedrolls were immediately changed. However, the passengers felt sick and complained of vomiting. Therefore, the train was stopped at Badshahnagar station for nearly 30 minutes”.

He added, “After the train was stopped at Badshahnagar station, the three passengers were attended by a team of railway doctors in the coach itself. The passengers were being given medicines as well, however, they declined them saying their condition has improved. After their proper check-up, the train left for its destination.”
