He said in a clarification here that being an interlocked gate, the signal remained red on that date as the gate was not closed.
The driver on seeing the red signal stopped the train before the gate. This was as per the safety procedure and no safety norm was violated by the driver, as reported in these columns on February 8.
Meanwhile, disciplinary action was taken against the gatekeeper for his failure to close the gate in time and for having caused detention to the train, the CPRM added.
