SC rail notice

New Delhi, Feb. 28: The Supreme Court has sought a response from the Centre and the railway ministry on a PIL calling for a ban on all sub-standard materials used in rail coaches in view of increasing fire accidents in trains.

A bench of Chief Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued the notice on a PIL filed by advocate Abhay Singh through counsel Vindhya Singh.

The PIL alleged that such mishaps were on accounts of the sub-standard materials used by contractors/vendors. It alleged that the same persons were getting the contracts in collusion with rail officials.
