Hoons Graffiti on Mangaluru- Madagaon train: Probe ordered

Hoons Graffiti on Mangaluru- Madagaon train: Probe ordered

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Aug 22, 2016 :  Chairman and Managing Director of Konkan Railways Sanjay Gupta has directed the Railway Security Police to undertake a probe into the recent  incident wherein the  Rail Hoons Graffiti was found on coaches of Madagaon- Mangaluru Passenger Train which reached Mangaluru Railway Station on Saturday.


Gupta has instructed the police to identify the accused and also re-paint the coaches which have been defaced.  Some anti-social write-ups were seen in the coaches of a few trains operating in Kerala and Tamil  Nadu since one week. Last week  two coaches of the Mangaluru- Madagaon train also had the  Hoons graffiti.

Hoons is a term which is used in Australia and New Zealand  and denotes anti-social.   It is believed that the Hoons graffiti  might be the handiwork of some foreign tourists in Goa when the  train coaches are left for servicing there.

In 2015, a similar graffiti was spotted in a coach of Madagaon- Mumbai train. The same were erased by the railway officials. There is also a suspicion that this might be an attempt to divert the attention of the authorities  and resort to some disruptive acts.
