Puri: In a deplorable act of sheer negligence and unpardonable action committed by the concerned railway level crossing guard on duty, the Siddhamahavir level crossing gates of both sides were discovered wide open despite an express train was moving past today morning. The train was Tapaswani Express.

Fortunately there has been no menace reported as the alert public waited patiently till the train passed by.

Even a conscious cow was seen waiting for the train to chug.

Soon after a conscious citizen brought the matter to the notice of the railway authorities via twitter and pat came the response by the East Coast Railway (ECoR) PRO, “Concerned authorities have been informed. Enquiry has started. Divisional Railway Manger of KHURDA ROAD has reacted immediately and set up 4-member enquiry team. Members of the team include heads of Safety, Electrical Operations, signal and General Operations departments. Preliminary enquiry report expected by tomorrow and action will be taken accordingly."
