New Delhi: The railways reiterated on Saturday night that it was ferrying only those authorized by state governments in its special trains for people stranded during the lockdown, following reports of unauthorized travel and crowding at some stations.

In a late-night statement, the national transporter said, “Railways only accepting passengers, brought and facilitated by state governments. No other group of travelers or individuals are to come to the station.”

“Some special trains being run only on state governments’ requests. All other passengers and suburban train services remain suspended,” it said.

The railways also said that no tickets are being sold at any station, advising people not to converge at any rail station.

India is under a nationwide lockdown to check the spread of the novel coronavirus, with a ban on rail, air and road traffic.

Earlier this week, the Union Home Ministry allowed states to ferry their residents, particularly migrant laborers, students, and tourists, stranded outside due to the lockdown in special buses and trains.
