New Delhi: In a bid to stop cattle incidents on trains, the Ministry of Railways has approved a new design for the boundary wall.

Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw informed this on Wednesday and said that a new boundary wall will be installed in the next 5-6 months.

Last month, three incidents of the Vande Bharat Express train hitting cattle were reported on the Maharashtra-Gujarat route.

On October 29, an incident of cattle trampling was reported near Atul in Mumbai Central Division. The train was on its journey from Mumbai Central to Gandhinagar.

The nose of the then newly launched Mumbai Central-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Express had suffered damage after it hit a bull.

On October 6, four buffaloes died after being run over by this train going to Gandhinagar from Mumbai between Vatva and Maninagar railway stations in Gujarat.

In a similar incident that happened the next day (October 7), the train had hit a cow near Anand in Gujarat while on its way to Mumbai.
