Virudhunagar, India: I’m important, I can’t wait at a level crossing

24 Mar

An electioneering Minister of the Tamil Nadu state government was put at risk because his aides thought he couldn’t afford to wait at a manned level crossing near Virudhunagar. The result was that the minister’s car entered the level crossing as the barriers were being lowered with the result that the car then became trapped between lowered level crossing barriers. The barriers were raised by the crossing keeper so that the ministerial vehicle could proceed.
