Bengaluru: The Railway police and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel in Karnataka are on high alert, as violent protests have erupted across the country over the ‘Agnipath’ military recruitment scheme of the Union government.

Security has been tightened at Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Railway Station in the central business district of Bengaluru. Similarly, security has also been beefed up at Vishveshwaraya Railway Station in Byappanahalli, Yeshwanthpur, and Cantonment Railway stations in Bengaluru.

The railway stations in major cities of the state like Hubballi, Mangaluru, Belagavi, Shivamogga, Mysuru have also been put on alert.

The RPF has been directed to be prepared in case of protests on railway tracks or rail-roko agitations. The department is keeping a vigil on the movements of passengers as there may be protestors in the guise of travellers.

Considering the seriousness of the matter, the authorities have given liberty to officers to take suspicious persons into custody and be on high alert to face any eventuality. So far, no protest or violence has been reported from the state over the Agnipath scheme.
