Offenders destroy Yangon circular railways, authority does repair work

For the convenience of travellers in Yangon, Myanma Railways has been running the RBE daily from 24 March along the Insein-Yangon-Mingalardon-Insein route, but offenders are frequently destroying the tracks.
On 30 March, a total of 88 rail control clips were removed from the railway on the level crossing of Kamayut Station Road, and Myanma Railways staff had to install them. On the same day, the security forces and railway staff had to remove two 20-foot-long old rail tracks which were crossed on the railways at Kyimyindine station and the pile of rubbish on the railway.
On 31 March, a 30-year-old man was found setting fire to six small car tyres on a train at the Kyimyindine station entrance, and he escaped into Weluwun ward, Sangyoung Township, while the security forces were catching him. The car tyres found to be burnt along the railway at the station were also destroyed.
Similarly, four railroad connecting tracks were removed from the inner railway line between Kamayut and Hledan stations yesterday. It was also found that four sleepers on the railway inside the Kyimyindine station were set on fire, and security forces and responsible persons from Myanma Railways had to install the 30 railway couplets, which were removed.
Myanma Railways will file a case at the relevant police station in accordance with the law and take legal action against the perpetrators. —MNA
