Travelling on rooftops of trains has always been illegal. Most of the people who try these types of stunts are ticketless travellers. The only punishment the railways should award them is one full year in prison and a fine of Rs 10,000, which should be non-bailable. This will reduce rooftop travelling, deaths and accidents and will make train travelling a pleasure.
