This is part of the doubling of the 467km Pune-Londa railway line, which was the costliest project announced in the state by railway minister Suresh Prabhu. In fact the railways had prepared a doubling proposal almost a decade back. The railway board had sanctioned the survey and proposal in 1996-97 followed by inclusion of the survey in the blue book by 2004-05. Inclusion in blue book means keeping the project on hold for some time.

बेळगाव- माडीगुंजी (ता. खानापूर, जि. बेळगाव) येथील रेल्वे रूळावर आज (गुरुवार) दोन सुतळी बॉम्ब सापडल्याने खळबळ उडाली आहे. उत्तर परिक्षेत्राचे पोलिस महानिरीक्षक भास्कर राव यांनी तातडीने घटनास्थळी धाव घेतल्याने याची चर्चा अधिकच रंगली. परंतु, डुक्करांना मारण्यासाठी फटाक्‍याची दारू घालून, हे बॉम्ब तयार केल्याचे स्पष्ट झाल्यानंतर पोलिस खात्याने सुटकेचा निःश्‍वास सोडला.
खानापूरपासून दहा किलोमीटरवरील माडीगुंजी रेल्वे रूळावर सकाळी अकराच्या सुमारास दोन बॉम्बसदृश्‍य वस्तू आढळून आल्या. त्यामुळे रेल्वे खात्याने तातडीने ही माहिती त्यांच्या वरिष्ठांना दिली. रेल्वे अधिकाऱ्यांनी ही माहिती पोलिसांना दिल्यानंतर आयजीपी भास्कर राव यांनी तातडीने घटनास्थळी भेट दिली. खानापूरचे पोलिस निरीक्षक शेखराप्पा, उपनिरीक्षक उस्मान अवटी यांनीही सहकाऱ्यांसह धाव घेतली. बॉम्ब निकामी पथकालाही पाचारण केले. या दोन्ही बॉम्बची चाचपणी केली असता फटाक्‍याची दारू कागदात गुंडाळून त्यावर सुतळी बांधून ठेवल्याचे आढळून आले.
दोन्ही रेल्वे रूळाच्या मधोमध ठेवल्याने याची अधिक चर्चा झाली. परंतु, ती ठेवलेली जागा आणि ती बनविण्याची पद्धत पाहता डुक्करे मारण्यासाठी ते ठेवले असण्याची शक्‍यता पोलिसांनी व्यक्त केली. परंतु, ते येथे आणून कोणी ठेवली? याचा शोध घेत आहोत, असे आयजीपी राव यांनी "सकाळ‘ला सांगितले.

Two country-made bombs were found near the railway track at Kirwala village in Khanapur taluk between Gunji and Londa railway stations on Thursday.
A vigilant railway keyman immediately alerted his superiors, and a tragedy was averted with the police defusing one of the bombs and taking the other for ballistic examination.
Railway keyman Hanmantgouda Patil, who had been checking the railway track on Thursday, noticed two explosives wrapped in a newspaper and lying near the railway track. He brought it to the notice of his superiors at Londa railway station.
services between Londa and Gunji were halted. Soon, the Khanapur police arrived at the spot with a bomb disposal squad and sniffer dogs to check for more explosives in the vicinity.
During checkup of the explosives found, two live bombs without detonators were found. Police suspect that the bombs could have been kept to scare railway passengers.
About 10 gram of explosives were found to have been wrapped in thick threads. Local residents use such explosives for blasting and to scare away wild animals coming near human habitats.
Additional Superintendent of Police B N Nyamgouda and senior police officers visited the spot.
Nyamgouda said that miscreants could have kept the low-intensity bombs near the railway track to scare passengers, but the police had taken the issue seriously and would investigate the case.
Trains on Belagavi-Londa route were delayed by more than four hours due to the bomb scare. Trains were halted at Belagavi, Ghataprabha, Londa, Alnavar, Gunji and Desur railway stations.
Services resumed after a engine completed a test run on the route. The railway police have registered a case.
