Siliguri: Indian Railways will send a detailed report to the World Heritage Centre of Unesco on the damage caused to heritage properties of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) and how its services were disrupted during the four-months of agitation in the hills.
A senior railway official on Monday said that officials of the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) had been asked to prepare the report and submit it to the ministry.
“We will send the report to Unesco. It is necessary to share the information with them as DHR is a World Heritage recognised by the Unesco. It will contain all details about what has happened to the heritage properties, the losses and other relevant information,” said Subrata Nath, the executive director (heritage) of the railway board, over phone from Delhi.
