People coming to New Delhi Railway Station to see off their loved ones will not be able to enter platforms from Monday with the Railways deciding to stop sale of platform tickets to control crowd inside.

The decision came tonight in the wake of a stampede in the railway station which claimed two lives and injured eight others.

"We will stop the sale of platform tickets from tomorrow. This is aimed at controlling crowd inside the platforms," a Railway official said.
