it may be a suggestion to the authority and the like minded social and political organisation to raise the issue with the appropriate authority and also with railway authority to created boundary fencing all along the rail track from the Gumto to Naharlagun as the rail track passes through the busy Doimukh town of Papum Pare district. The rail authority can also establish warning system all along the rail track fixed point like the NEEPCO has done at selective place on the back of river pare, it is also suggested that the speed limit of the train is reduced from 100-50 and again to 50-30 KM and if required it may be taken to 20 KMPH to avert repeated rail accident and death. It is also suggested that the CCTV system may also be installed to check such accidents and other issues related to rail track and surveillance.
