The problem of people throwing stones at the Vande Bharat express train at semi high speed doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Ever since this train started running between Gorakhpur to Prayagraj via Ayodhya and Lucknow, there have been more incidents of stone throwing.

Just recently, on Monday 8 April 2024, someone threw stones at the Gorakhpur Ayodhya Vande Bharat train near Ayodhya as it was coming to Gorakhpur. As a result, the window glass near seats 33 and 34 in coach C7 got broken. And just the day before, on Sunday 7 April 2024, the window glass near seats 20, 21, and 22 in coach C6 was also broken.

Before that, on July 11 2023, a man and his son threw stones at the Vande Bharat train at Sohawal station in Ayodhya district. They were seeking revenge because their herd of goats had been hit and killed by the Vande Bharat Express. And earlier, on August 6 2023, two minors who were standing on the foot overbridge at Safedabad railway station allegedly threw stones at the train just for fun. This caused damage to the windowpane of the Vande Bharat train.

Even on March 20 2024, there were incidents of stones being thrown at the Gorakhpur Ayodhya Vande Bharat Express traveling from Prayagraj to Gorakhpur. An unknown person threw a stone near the outer signal of Unchahar railway station. As a result, the glass on the window near seats 38 and 39 in coach C-7 got cracked.

And on March 18 2024, the window glass near seats 23, 24, 28, and 29 in coach C-2, as well as seats 63 and 64 in coach C-4, got cracked due to stones falling between Bachhrawana and Shrirajnagar stations on the route between Prayagraj and Lucknow. The Railways had to spend approximately Rs 13,000 just to replace one window.
