Security at railway stations to be vested with OICs due to ongoing strike

The security of railway stations will be handed over to Officers-in-Charge (OICs) of respective police stations, says Transport State Minister Dilum Amunugama.

Sri Lanka Railway Station Masters’ Union initiated another strike action earlier today, hours after they called off their 24-hour token strike.

Tense situations were reported at several railway stations yesterday, as angered passengers attacked trains and railway stations after it was announced that most of the train journeys were cancelled due to the 24-hour trade union action. – ada derana
