In a first, as many as 109 people were jailed in UP for peeing in public. Finally taking a step to curb the disgusting habit, the Government Railway Police of Agra not only jailed, but also fined the men who were caught in the act of urinating on the railway property, including platforms, tracks and parking lots in Agra.

The nabbing of miscreants was a part of a 48 hour long drive across all 12 stations of the Agra division of GRP.

“In a special drive conducted at several stations of Agra division, including Agra Cantt, Agra Fort, Idgah, Raja Ki Mandi and Tundla, 10​9​ men were sent to jail for 24 hours​ and were penalized up to Rs 500 for urinating in public places on railway properties in front of women and children. They were also fined for creating public nuisance by consuming alcohol or spitting pan masala from the window of trains in public place,” said Gopeshnath Khanna, Senior Superintendent of GRP, Agra division.2731613066_41a04c853c_z

“The drive is a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative of ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign. The offenders were charged under Section 34 of the Police Act (Punishment for certain offences such as inconvenience, annoyance to passengers or residents in public places, roads, etc),” he added.

The people arrested were later on released after they paid fines ranging from Rs. 100-Rs. 500.

“The message behind such a drive is to convey people, that enough is enough. For more than six decades, our adamant social behavior has not changed. This city hosts millions of tourist every year, we just can’t be negligent and irresponsible when comes to showing etiquettes in public fora,” the GRP superintendent was quoted as saying.
