Voice-backed langoor cutouts to control monkey menace at Kanpur Railway Station

Voice-backed langoor cutouts to control monkey menace at Kanpur Railway Station

If the move proves to be effective, all railway stations of the North Central Railway (NCR) division will get langur posters

Officials of the Kanpur Railway Station have come up with an innovative idea to scare away monkeys crowding the Central Railway Station. Large posters and giant cutouts of langurs have been placed at major sites to shoo monkeys, which are infamous for terrorising and harming passengers. If the move proves to be effective, all railway stations of the North Central Railway (NCR) division will get langur posters, the Public Relations Officer at NCR, Amit Kumar Singh said.

Langur poster initiative begins at Kanpur Railway Station on trial basis

Monkeys have been a major cause of concern because of several attacks in the recent past. "The monkeys attack children, snatch their food, and often they also pick up bags and run away", the PRO added. Some of these incidents have proved fatal as well. To avert these, the Railways has decided to use langur posters and cutouts to scare away the monkeys.

"We have implemented it at Kanpur Central on an experimental basis," he said and added, "Along with this, speakers have also been installed near the posters and cut-outs so that the sounds of langurs can also be heard. It has been done to scare the monkeys. In North Central Railway, this experiment has been started at the Central station which will run till April 30. If the experiment is successful, it will be implemented at Panki station and other stations."

A senior railway official further added, "This is a problem caused by passengers, who feed leftover food to simians. When the monkeys do not get food, they turn aggressive and attack the passengers."

While this has highlighted the need to raise awareness among the passengers, railway vendors have also complained that they could not carry packets of chips or other packages of food items as simians would snatch them as well. The whole ordeal to control such incidents pushed the officials to take a corrective step.
