  1. Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw emphasised the crucial role of loco pilots within the railway system and criticised what he described as misinformation and dramatic actions by the opposition aimed at demoralising them. Vaishnaw used the X platform to outline various measures implemented by the Railways to enhance working conditions for train drivers. “Duty hours of loco pilots are closely monitored, with meticulous provision of rest after trips,” he stated. He highlighted that the average monthly duty hours in June this year were kept below 8 hours, adhering to prescribed limits. Vaishnaw acknowledged that trip durations occasionally exceed standard hours, but only in exceptional circumstances. Recently, the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi met with a group of loco pilots who raised concerns about “inadequate rest due to understaffing.”
  2. In a court session held on Wednesday, Mihir Shah, the main suspect in the BMW hit-and-run incident, was remanded to police custody until July 16. Shah, aged 24, was apprehended on Tuesday, following an incident where he allegedly collided his BMW into a two-wheeler, resulting in the death of a woman, Kaveri Nakhwa, and injuries to her husband, Pradeep. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate S P Bhosale at the Sewri court presided over the proceedings and granted the police custody of Shah. The police argued that the incident was a callous and heartless act, pressing for extended custody to investigate accomplices involved in Shah’s escape and recover the car’s missing number plate.
