have traced 22 such two-wheelers from parking and no-parking areas and the immediate neighbourhood of the Ernakulam Junction station, 16 from the Ernakulam Town station, eight from Aluva station and two from Angamaly station. The vehicles found in a state of abandonment were posing grave security threat to railways,” said T.S. Gopakumar, Assistant Commissioner, RPF, Ernakulam.

Mr. Gopakumar said that owners of such vehicles could contact RPF over the helpline number 182 and they would be released after due legal procedures.
