Kolkata: Two days after the death of a 66-year-old passenger in Kolkata metro, a team of senior railway safety officials Monday examined the 'Medha' rake whose doors shut on him leading to the tragedy.
The inspecting team asked Metro officials to install convex mirrors so that the motorman gets the full view of the platform, said Indrani Bandopadhyay, chief public relations officer of Kolkata metro.
The inspection team first held a meeting with Kolkata metro staff at Metro Bhawan after which they visited the spot and examined the CCTV footage of the incident, sources said.
According to metro officials, the passenger, Sajal Kumar Kanjilal, died when he was trying to board a train at Park Street Station on Saturday.
In India, only Kolkata metro is operated by the Ministry of Railways.
