LUCKNOW, Uttar Pradesh, India — Officials in the northeast Indian city of Lucknow have banned bananas from the provincial capital city's Charbaugh Railway station.

Bureaucrats say the yellow fruit's peels contribute to dirtying the station. They've warned fruit sellers that any one violating the banana ban will be dealt with strictly.
