মাতৃভূমি লোকাল নিয়ে এমনিতেই জেরবার রেল-পরিষেবা। তার মধ্যে এ দিন আবার দু’টি ট্রেন মুখোমুখি হয়ে গেল দমদমে! তাই নিয়ে ব্যাপক আতঙ্ক ছড়ালেও শেষমেশ দুর্ঘটনা এড়ানো গিয়েছে। দমদম স্টেশনে ঘটনাটি ঘটে বৃহস্পতিবার রাত আটটা নাগাদ।
রেল কর্তারা জানিয়েছেন, পয়েন্ট ভুল সেট হওয়ায় দু’টি ট্রেন মুখোমুখি হয়ে গিয়েছিল। পরে জানা যায়, রেলের লোকজনের ভুলেই এই বিপত্তি। যার জেরে পাঁচ জনকে সাসপেন্ড করেছেন জেনারেল ম্যানেজার।
পয়েন্ট সেট করার অর্থ কী?

লাইন থেকে অন্য লাইনে ট্রেন যাওয়ার জন্য একটি বিশেষ পয়েন্ট ঠিক করতে হয়। তা না হলে ট্রেন ভুল লাইনে চলে যেতে পারে। পয়েন্ট ভুল হলে সিগন্যালও ভুল হয়। এ যাত্রা দুর্ঘটনা এড়ানো গেলেও ওই ঘটনাকে কেন্দ্র করে দু’টি ট্রেনের যাত্রীদের মধ্যে আতঙ্ক তৈরি হয়। কিছু ক্ষণের জন্য বন্ধ হয়ে যায় ট্রেন চলাচল। যাত্রীরা স্টেশনে নেমে ইটপাটকেল মারতে শুরু করেন। উত্তেজিত জনতার একাংশ স্টেশনে ভাঙচুরও করে বলে অভিযোগ। আরপিএফ এসে ঠেকাতে গেলে তাদের সঙ্গেই যাত্রীদের হাতাহাতি বেধে যায়। পরে অবশ্য আরও বেশি সংখ্যক পুলিশ এসে পরিস্থিতি নিয়ন্ত্রণে আনে।
দমদমে যখন এই ঘটনা ঘটছে সেই সময় রেলমন্ত্রী সুরেশ প্রভু নবান্নে মুখ্যমন্ত্রীর সঙ্গে বৈঠক করছেন। সেখানে অবশ্য এই প্রসঙ্গ ওঠেনি। রেল কর্তারা বিষয়টি রেলমন্ত্রীকে জানাননি।
ঠিক কী হয়েছিল এ দিন?
রেল সূত্রের খবর, রাত ৮টা নাগাদ দমদম স্টেশনের ৪ নম্বর প্ল্যাটফর্মে আপ রানাঘাট লোকাল দাঁড়িয়েছিল। আচমকাই ওই লাইনে ডাউন ডানকুনি লোকাল চলে আসে। প্রায় মুখোমুখি হয়ে যায়। আতঙ্কে তখন দু’টি ট্রেনের যাত্রীই প্ল্যাটফর্মে নেমে পড়েন। চিৎকার চেঁচামেচি শুরু হয়ে যায়। এর মাঝেই উত্তেজিত যাত্রীদের একাংশ লাইন থেকে পাথর তুলে ছুড়তে শুরু করেন। কেউ কেউ স্টেশনে ভাঙচুরও করতে শুরু করেন। ছুটে আসে আরপিএফ। তারা লাঠি উঁচিয়ে যাত্রীদের তাড়া করলে আগুনে ঘি পড়ে। পরে অবশ্য পরিস্থিতি আয়ত্তে আনে আরপিএফ।
রেলের কর্তারা জানিয়েছেন, যাত্রীরা আতঙ্কিত হয়ে গোলমাল বাধিয়েছেন। তাঁরা হাঙ্গামা না করলে কিছুই হত না। কারণ চালকরা যথেষ্ট প্রশিক্ষিত। পূর্ব রেলের মুখ্য জনসংযোগ আধিকারিক রবি মহাপাত্র বলেছেন, ‘‘সিগন্যাল খারাপ হওয়ায় এ দিন প্রায় দু’ঘণ্টা ট্রেন চলাচল বিপর্যস্ত হয়েছে।’’
অফিসের ব্যস্ত সময়ে এই ঘটনা ঘটায় এ দিন শিয়ালদহ মেন লাইনে ট্রেন চলাচল বিপর্যস্ত হয়। প্রায় তিন ঘণ্টা ধরে শিয়ালদহের মেন, ডানকুনি ও বনগাঁ শাখার সব ট্রেনই দেরিতে চলেছে। সাড়ে ৯টার পরে সিগন্যাল মেরামত করা গেলেও ট্রেন চলাচল স্বাভাবিক হতে বেশ রাত হয়ে যায়।

It supplied 13 Metro coaches to Kolkata between 2011 and 2013. The ICF is also manufacturing Luxury Coaches on a par with international standards. The Golden Chariot, Palace on Wheels, Deccan Odyssey and the Maharaja’s Express are some of the luxury trains created in the ICF – said Mr.A.K.Agarwal, GM/ICF
Kolkata (KOAA): The Integral Coach Factory (ICF), a unit of the Indian Railways is well-equipped to manufacture coaches for Metro Rail, but it is not allowed to participate in the tender process because of technical reasons, said Ashok K. Agarwal, ICF General Manager.
“If

we can supply coaches to Calcutta Metro why not to Chennai and other Metros? Moreover, we can manufacture coaches for a cost 30 to 40 per cent less than other companies,” he told.
ICF has supplied 13 rakes (eight coaches each) of fully air-conditioned stainless steel body Metro coaches to Kolkata between 2011 and 2013, and has an order for manufacturing two more rakes with the latest three-phase insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) technology during the current production year.
Mr.Agarwal, who is also holding additional charge as General Manager of the Southern Railway, said the ICF was not eligible to participate in the tender process, because it was only a coach builder and it depended on other companies like Bharat Heavy Electrical (BHEL) and MEDHA for electrics.
Since Kolkata Metro is run by Indian Railways, ICF was given the order to supply the coaches. In the case of Metro Rail companies in other cities, as they are PSUs and under global tenders, it was mandatory for a coaching factory to manufacture everything under one unit. The new Metro Rail projects are mostly funded by the World Bank or the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and they have a say in deciding the eligibility condition for the global tenders for coaches.
“This is the only reason preventing us from supplying coaches to other Metros, including Chennai Metro,” Mr. Agarwal said.
The ICF is also manufacturing Luxury Coaches on a par with international standards. The Golden Chariot, Palace on Wheels, Deccan Odyssey and the Maharaja’s Express are some of the luxury trains created in the ICF
“It is only a question of money. Depending on the investment, we will manufacture coaches,” Mr. Agarwal said.

BARRACKPORE: Tuesday's blast had little to do with gang rivalry and was more a snatching attempt gone wrong, say passengers of coach 16983 of the Up Krishnanagar local.
At least three passengers recalled having heard shouts of "chaku nikaal" (take out your knives) at Titagarh station as the train pulled in. Doctors attending to the victims at BN Bose Subdivisional Hospital confirmed that at least one passenger -BSF officr Alok Sil who jumped off the train -has knife wounds besides compound fractures.

before the blast, coinciding with the time the train entered the station. "Everyone was seated but a couple of youths were pacing near the door right from Dum Dum. I thought they would get off early. But as soon as the train reached Titagarh, some more youths boarded the train and hey started talking that they should get off at Talpukur be ore the train reaches Barrack pore," said Mukhtar. This brings police's theory of gang rivalry under scrutiny .
A tea vendor recalls seeing wo or three "blood-smeared people" running out of the rain after the blast. He asked hem if they needed help but hey gruffly told him off.
The mother of Raja Das says he and Bhola Chowdhury were best friends. "They al ways hung out together and were out of their houses on Monday night," she said.
Locals allege that this gang had become a headache of late targeting passengers on morning trains. Local police say the gang members -numbering around 10 -lived in the rail way slum next to platform 1 of Titagarh station and had migrated to serious crime in the past three months.
"Some of those we have detained have claimed that their original target was the Down Muzaffarpur Fast Passenger train, but they changed their plan at the last moment. Most of the money was used to buy heroin," said a GRP officer.
"We have often informed the GRP and RPF about the gang. Though they were occasionally arrested, they never remained behind bars for more than two days," said Trinamool leader Rajesh Das.
While Raja's mother said he often brought new models of cellphones, sold them and dreamt of setting up a shop to give up rag-picking as a living, his sister pointed out that Kana and Raja recently had a fallout over a woman. Cops said they are probing all angles.
