A key suspect in the derailment of the Indore-Patna Express in Kanpur in the early hours of November 21 last year was arrested at the Tribhuvan International Airport on Tuesday after being deported from Dubai.

The three others were identified as Brij Kishor Giri, Ashish Singh and Umesh Kumar Kurmi — all from Kalaiya district in southern Nepal.
The police have brought Hoda and the three others to Nepal from Dubai in coordination with the Interpol, Mr. Upadhyaya said.
Hoda is also the mastermind of a twin murder in Bara district of Nepal, the police said.
Involved in a number of crimes
Hoda has links with international criminal groups and has been involved in a number of criminal activities in Nepal and India, Mr. Upadhyaya said.
A case has been registered against him in Bara District Court.

JHARGRAM/PURULIA: A large number of Adivasi Kurmi sabha members in Jhargram and Purulia joined their brethren in Jharkhand and Odisha on Monday to agitate for their demand of Scheduled Tribe status and recognition of the Kurmali language in the Constitution.
At Jhargram's Sardiha station, Kurmi sabha members organized a rail roko that allegedly turned violent with hurling of stones and bricks at police, injuring SDPO Jhargram among others.
West Midnapore SP Bharati Ghosh said: "The agitators' demands were forwarded to the state. Some policemen were injured when the mob turned violent."

An accident was averted on Monday when a low-intensity crude bomb exploded on the railway track in Buxar district of Bihar. There was no report of any casualty or any major damage to the track.
District police officials said it was a low-intensity crude bomb explosion with a loud noise.. Prima facie, it appears there was no terror angle to it, they added. “Investigation is going on…no damage has been done either and no casualty as well,” said Buxar SP, Upendra Sharma.
Meanwhile, the East-Central Railway spokesperson A K Rajak told journalists that

no one was injured in the blast on the railway track between Buxar and Baruna railway station. “People heard a loud noise when Varanasi-Sealdah Upper India express train was crossing the track at around 12:10 pm......some said it was hurled on the track,” said Mr. Rajak.
Train services resumed
Later, services of the train were resumed on the track, he said while adding, “an inquiry has been ordered by the Railways into it”.
However, this incident has come in the wake of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) probing terrorist sabotage behind train accidents in Kanpur and elsewhere in recent past. Earlier, while chasing a bomb plant at railway track in Ghorasahan of East Champaran district in Bihar, police had arrested three persons who had claimed the involvement of Pakistan-based intelligence agency ISI in train accidents in the country. They had also named some people based at Nepal and Dubai in this connection. . Recently, the NIA officials had taken the three arrested persons on remand to bust the nefarious design of ISI to blow up railway tracks in India.

BENGALURU: An alert train driver averted an attempt to derail a train in the Bengaluru Railway Division. The attempt was made on the Siddaganga Intercity Express (Bengaluru to Dharwad) on Saturday afternoon. There were no casualties or injuries to the nearly 1,500 passengers on board. The train’s engine was damaged.
According to railway sources, a huge rail piece had been placed on the tracks between Yeshwantpur and Chikkabanavar. “The Intercity left Bengaluru at 1 pm and crossed Yeshwantpur by 1.45pm. It was on its way to Chikkabanavar when the loco-pilot Surendran spotted a 3-metre-long piece of rail lying on the tracks and applied emergency brakes.”

averted a possible accident, a top official said.
“However, the rail piece got tagged on to the bottom of the locomotive and was dragged for a short distance. In the process, the cattle guard was damaged and the cable equipment under the engine too were affected.” The engine became malfunctional and stopped moving.
Cattle guard is the metal sheet or iron bars in front of the engine that prevents an object that comes in contact with the loco, including cattle, from going beneath the engine and damaging its traction motor.
“We suspect the role of miscreants deliberately attempting to derail the train. However, it could be the work of kids leaving behind a rail found next to the tracks while playing,” another official said. “We’ll get more information from the findings of the inquiry,” he added.
Another engine was brought to the spot in a relief loco from Chikkabanavar. The damaged engine was replaced and the train started running after a two-hour delay, an official said.

Angry over delay of arrival of Venad Express at Kottayam railway station
Rail traffic on the Ernakulam-Kottayam-Thriuvananthapuram line remained paralysed for over two hours on Thursday as the 16302-Venad Express from Thiruvananthapuram to Shoranur was waylaid by commuters protesting against the inordinate delay in the arrival of the train at Kottayam.
The commuters had taken up the matter at various levels but to no avail. The train, of which the official arrival time is 8:02 a.m. and departure, 8:05 a.m. usually arrived by 9:30 a.m. This delay had resulted in hundreds of people

arriving late at their offices in Ernakulam.
On Thursday, the commuters who were to board the train from the Kottayam railway station saw the incoming train that arrived by 9.30 a.m., walked on to the rail line, and staged a sit-in. They were soon joined by those passengers who were already on the train.
With hundreds of commuters, including women and children, agitating, the railway police started engaging in talks with them. They were soon joined by the local police under U. Sreejith, sub-inspector, Kottayam (East) police station. With little progress in talks, the railway officials under the Kottayam railway station manager too joined the discussions.
Later, the railway authorities contacted higher-ups and after getting assurance that they would take steps to regularise the running time of the train, Venad Express moved from Kottayam by 11.30. Other trains that remained halted at different stations moved later.

फैजाबाद हिन्दुस्तान संवादरेल लाइनों में फ्रै क्चर होने की घटनाएं थमने का नाम ही नही ले रही हैं। गुरुवार को मध्यान्ह 12 बजे फैजाबाद रेलवे स्टेशन पर मेन लाइन फै्रक्चर होने के बाद मध्य रात्रि अयोध्या रेलवे स्टेशन के प्वाइंट नम्बर 66 के पास मेन लाइन में फ्रै क्चर आ गया। लाइन की पेट्रोलिंग करने निकले गैंगमैन ने जब कोल साइडिंग की ओर रेल लाइन टूटी देखी तो उसने तत्काल स्टेशन मास्टर अयोध्या को इसकी सूचना दी। स्टेशन मास्टर ने तत्काल पीडब्ल्यूआई को सूचित कर लाइन की मरम्मत कराई। अयोध्या रेलवे स्टेशन की मेन लाइन में 66 नम्बर प्वाइंट के पास गुरुवार की रात फ्रैक्चर आ गया। उस समय इसी लाइन से होकर सियालदह एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन गुजरने वाली थी। रेल लाइन की पेट्रोलिंग करने निकले गैंग मैन महेन्द्र कुमार ने फ्रैक्चर को देख लिया। उन्होंने तत्काल इसकी सूचना एसएम अयोध्या राजीव रंजन को दी। एसएम ने पीडब्ल्यूआई नन्दन सिंह को लाइन टूटी होने की जानकारी दी। एसएम ने तत्काल सियालदह एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन को आचार्य नरेन्द्र देव रेलवे स्टेशन पर रोकने का मैसेज पास कर दिया। पीडब्ल्यूआई नन्दन सिंह ने कर्मचारियों के सहयोग से लाइन पर फिक्स प्लेट लगाकर व ट्रेनों को 10 किलोमीटर की रफ्तार से गुजारने के लिए फिटनेस दिया। रात्रि लगभग एक बजे मेन लाइन से सियालदह एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन को काशन पर गुजारा गया। पीडब्ल्यूआई नन्दन सिंह ने शुक्रवार को अपरान्ह तीन बजे 18 घंटे के बाद लाइन को पूरी तरह से फिट बताया। आखिर क्यों बार-बार रेल लाइनों मे हो रहा फ्रैक्चरफैजाबाद सेक्शन में बार-बार पटरियों की टूटने की घटनाएं हो रही हैं। पहले आचार्य नरेन्द्र देव नगर के पास, फिर फैजाबाद रेलवे स्टेशन पर एक सप्ताह में दो-दो बार एक ही स्थान पर फ्रैक्चर और अब अयोध्या में रेल लाइन में फ्रैक्चर की घटना ने रेल विभाग के अधिकारियों व कर्मचारियों की कार्यशैली पर सवालिया निशान लगा दिए हैं। आखिर फैजाबाद क्षेत्र में ही ऐसी घटनाएं क्यों हो रही हैं। इस सम्बन्ध में पीडब्ल्यूआई नन्दन सिंह ने बताया कि वातावरण में लगातार उतार-चढ़ाव होने के कारण रेल लाइनों में फ्रैक्चर आ जाता है। उन्होंने इस बात से इनकार किया कि सही ढंग से मरम्मत न होने के कारण ऐसी घटनाएं हो रही हैं।

जर्जर रेल पटरियां के चटकने का सिलसिला और तेजी पकड़ रहा है। फैजाबाद स्टेशन पर दोपहर में क्रैक हुई रेल पटरी को लेकर रेलवे अभी हांफ ही रहा था कि आधी रात में अयोध्या-फैजाबाद के बीच साकेत कॉलेज के पास फिर पटरी टूट गई। हालांकि, पेट्रोल मैनों की सतर्कता से बड़ा हादसा टल गया। इससे मुख्य ट्रैक बाधित हो गया। ट्रेनों को जहां-तहां रोकना पड़ा।

गया था। रात में ट्रैक की पेट्रोलिंग पर निकले अयोध्या के पेट्रोल मैनों ने साकेत कॉलेज और पश्चिमी केबिन के निकट पॉइंट नंबर 66 के पास पटरी टूटी देखी।
उन्होंने इसकी सूचना स्टेशन मास्टर कार्यालय अयोध्या को दी। इस सूचना को अयोध्या ने आचार्य नरेंद्र देव नगर रेलवे स्टेशन को दिया तो ट्रेन सिटी स्टेशन पर रात सवा 12 बजे रोक दी गयी। गाड़ी आने से पूर्व ट्रैक की पेट्रोलिंग न हुई होती तो बहुत बड़ा हादसा हो सकता था। जहां ट्रैक टूटा था, वहां पर ट्रेन की गति तेज रहती है।
