हो गयी और अन्य लोग घायल हो गये.
घटना के बाद गुस्साये परिजनों और स्थानीय लोगों ने आरोप लगाया कि ट्रेन ने हार्न भी नहीं बजाया और गुजर गयी. यह हादसा रेलवे की लापरवाही से हुआ है. स्थानीय लोगों ने घटना के बाद रामभद्रपुर स्टेशन और स्टेशन पर खड़ी समस्तीपुर-जयनगर डीएमयू ट्रेन में तोड़फोड़ कि और स्टेशन मास्टर की बाइक को आग के हवाले कर दिया. सभी रेलकर्मी किसी तरह अपनी जान बचाकर वहां से भाग गये. दूसरी ओर समस्तीपुर-दरभंगा रेलखंड पर सभी ट्रेनों का परिचालन रोक दिया गया है. ग्रामीणों ने शवों को रेलवे ट्रैक पर रखकर परिचालन को बाधित कर दिया है. लोगों की मांग है कि डीआरएम को बुलाया जाये और सभी लोगों को उचित मुआवजे के साथ दोषी रेलकर्मियों पर कार्रवाई हो. आक्रोशित लोग मृतकों के परिजनों के लिये नौकरी की मांग भी कर रहे हैं.

नईदिल्ली से रही नाॅर्थ ईस्ट एक्सप्रेस में गुरुवार को एक गर्भवती महिला ने बच्चे को जन्म दिया। लेकिन, समय पर इलाज नहीं मिलने के कारण प्रसव के कुछ ही देर बाद जच्चा-बच्चा दोनों की मौत हो गई।मृतक महिला के पति मो. नईमूल हक ने बताया कि उसकी पत्नी कश्मीरी खातून को प्रसव-पीड़ा दानापुर स्टेशन से ही शुरू हुई थी। इसकी सूचना ट्रेन में चलने वाले रेलकर्मियों को दी लेकिन रेल प्रशासन ने गंभीरता नहीं दिखाई। बरौनी स्टेशन पर डॉक्टर ने महिला का चेकअप सिर्फ औपचारिकता निभाने के लिए किया। कटिहार स्टेशन पर जब ट्रेन पहुंची तो डॉक्टरों की टीम ने वहां भी कागजी खानापूरी की। किशनगंज जीआरपी थाना प्रभारी मो. मुजम्मिल ने बताया कि कटिहार और किशनगंज के बीच चलती ट्रेन में जच्चा-बच्चा की मौत गई।

Ara, Araria Court, Barauni, Chhapra, Dehri-on-Sone, Gaya, Hajipur, Jamalpur, Janakpur Road, Katihar, Khagaria, Kishanganj, Mokama, Motihari, Muzaffarpur, Nalanda, Narkatiaganj, Nawada, Patna, Purnia, Sasaram, Samastipur, Sheikhpura, Sitamarhi, Siwan, Sonepur, Sultanganj, Bakhtiyarpur, Biharsharif, Jamui, Jhajha, Kiul, Lakhisarai, Rajendra Nagar (T), Rajgir, Raxaul, Bhabua Road, Dalsinghsarai and Phulwarisarif are among the 55 stations in Bihar to be developed in joint collaboration with the state government.

said there is a growing demand to expedite the ongoing projects by financing and monitoring through joint ventures/special purpose vehicles with state governments. This will include surveys, preparation of detailed project report (DPR) and getting requisite approvals, processing for sanctioning and monitoring of identified projects, including last mile connectivity, capacity enhancement and station redevelopment projects, said an official.
Each JV would have an initial paid up capital of Rs100 crore. Based on the quantum of projects to be undertaken, the authorized equity share capital and the paid up capital can be enhanced from time to time with the approval of the Railway Board and the state government.
Karnataka government was the first state to set up a JV company with railways for taking up railway projects in its state. The railway stations under the ‘model station scheme, would have basic facilities such as electronic information of arrival, departure, television display of sequence of coaches etc.

Purnia: Expressing concern over the apathy of the Union government in terms of railway connectivity to the district, people here have sought the intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, railway minister Suresh Prabhu and minister of state for railways Manoj Sinha and demanded a special package.
.
Purnia residents have demanded extension of all trains running through Katihar and Saharsa junction via Purnia in order to cater to the needs of lakhs of passengers of Purnia and Saharsa districts besides those travelling to different part of the country from Nepal.
.

They have also demanded sanction of 40 km railway line from Purnia to Dalkhola (Uttar Dinajpur district, West Bengal) in order to connect Purnia with the main line as well as through the main line connecting Kishanganj to Guwahati.
.
Social activist Vijay Shreevastava said there is no rail connectivity between Purnia and Kishanganj, whereas there is railway connectivity between Dalkhola and Kishanganj that speaks volumes about the gross neglect of the region since long.
.
.
"Laying of 40 km railway line between Dalkhola and Purnia would bring help to Purnia on the rail map," said Shreevastava adding, "The need is to introduce new superfast trains between Guwahati to major cities in south and west, besides Delhi."
.
The region is bereft of any fast train and hence the Rajdhani Express from Guwahati should be diverted via Katihar to Purnia-Saharsa in order to provide additional facilities to the people of the region, he added
.
On the other, a large number of locals have initiated a signature campaign for providing railway network in Purnia. A memorandum has been sent to the PM, railway minister, CM Nitish Kumar and national BJP president Amit Shah in order to draw their attention.

A rail line from Kursela to Dalkola via Purnia parallel to Roadways will shorten the distance and will act as an good alternate to the existing route.
Another line Kursela-Purnia-Araria-Bahadurganj-Thakurganj and then connecting it to Thakurganj-Silliguri line will also provide a good alternative.

Cooch Behar: An indefinite 'rail roko' called by the Greater Cooch Behar Peoples Association (GCPA) demanding C category statehood or Union Territory status for Cooch Behar began Saturday morning, disrupting movement of trains.
Due to the stir, several long distance trains were held up at various stations, a Northeast Frontier Railway official said in Guwahati.
As part of the agitation, which began at about 6 AM on Saturday, GCPA supporters squatted on the railway tracks in New Cooch Behar station. They are demanding that representatives of the Home Ministry should come here to

hold talks with them.
As a result of the rail roko, Poorvottar Sampark Kranti Express was stranded at Salekati in Assam, New Delhi-Dibrugarh Mail at New Jalpaiguri (West Bengal), Howrah-Dibrugarh Kamrup Express at Dhupguri (West Bengal), Up Rajdhani Express and North-East Express at New Jalpaiguri, the Railway official said.
While Dn Rajdhani Express (via Kanpur) was stranded at Bongaigaon, Dn Kamrup Express was stranded at Barpeta Road station in Assam. New Jalpaiguri Rangiya passenger train has been cancelled in view of the agitation, the official said.
GCPA leader Bangshi Badan Barman said Cooch Behar was included in India following an agreement between the then Maharaja of Cooch Behar and the Government of India. Cooch Behar enjoyed status of C category state for about three months but the then West Bengal Chief Minister Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy included Cooch Behar into the state as a district.
The GCPA leader said they will not withdraw the movement till their demand to make Cooch Behar a C category state or Union Territory status is accepted.

A 29-year-old man died after his train was delayed by over 10 hours due to the rail roko agitation by GCPA members for Union territory status or C category statehood for Cooch Behar.
The rail roko at New Cooch Behar railway station continued despite the appeal by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to the protesters in Cooch Behar and Haryana to not block railway lines or harm railway properties as it inconvenienced the common people.
Benoy Thakur (29), a resident of Bihar's Begusarai, had boarded Kanchenjungha Express last evening at Guwahati with

his wife to travel to Kishanganj. The train was delayed by over 10 hours as it was stranded in the blockade and the man fell ill, GRP officials here said.
He vomited several times and his condition deteriorated but could not be given any medical aid. The general compartment in which he was travelling was also extremely crowded due to the late running of the train, they said.
When the train reached Alipurduar Junction station at 4 pm instead of the scheduled 6 am via Samoktola railway station, Thakur was rushed to Alipurduar Railway Hospital where he was declared brought dead, hospital sources said.
Appealing to protesters who have blocked railway lines in Cooch Behar and Haryana, Suresh Prabhu said at a programme in Kolkata, "You can always have a right to demonstrate. That is a democratic right, we respect that right. But we appeal to you that it is the common people of India who face most inconvenience."
"We wanted to launch a project in Cooch Behar but couldn't do it due to the ongoing agitation there. So let me take this opportunity to tell all the demonstrators, who may have genuine grievance. They should not block the railway tracks for doing that," he said.
Trains are still stranded in various stations of the area, popularly known as the 'chicken's neck', which connects the eastern and north eastern parts of the country. Some trains are also being diverted, Railway officials said.
A Northeast Frontier Railway spokesman said in Guwahati,
the NFR headquarters, that local trains in New Jalpaiguri-Coochbehar section have been cancelled as the main line was closed and all major long distance trains were diverted via New Bongaigaon-Samoktola, Alipurduar, Siliguri and New Jalpaiguri junction routes.
The Coochbehar-Changrabanda-Siliguri train service, to be inaugurated today through remote control from Kolkata was cancelled due to the agitation, he said.

One person died on a train delayed by the rail blockade carried out by those demanding for a ‘Greater Cooch Behar’ statehood or union territory on Sunday. The protest, which comes a few months before West Bengal goes to polls, was carried out by members of the Greater Cooch Behar People’s Association (GCPA). The deceased, who has been identified as Vinay Kumar Thakur, was a resident of Kishanganj in Bihar and had gone to Guwahati with his wife. After his health began deteriorating, they boarded the Kanchenjunga Express to return home to seek treatment. “They had left for home on Saturday afternoon. But the trains were delayed by the protests and she watched helplessly as her husband’s health kept getting worse until he finally died at Sunday morning. His body was recovered by the authorities at Alipurduar,” said a GPR officer. Meanwhile, the deceased’s wife has alleged that she “sought medical...

aid” on the train and found none and that “no official was present on board the train”. -
The protest by the GCPA agitators began at 6am on Saturday, as they demanded that representatives of the union Home Ministry speak to them. Armed with placards and refusing to end the protest until their demands are met, GCPA leader Bangshi Badan Barman explained, “Cooch Behar was inclided in India only after an agreement between the then Maharaja of Cooch Behar and the Government of India in September 1949. It enjoyed the status of a C-Category state for about three months, but afterwards the then West Bengal CM Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy included Cooch Behar as a district of West Bengal.” GCPA’s envisions the ‘Greater Cooch Behar State’ as a composite of various districts including Cooch Behar, Uttar Dinajpur, Dakshin Dinajpur in West Bengal and Kokrajhar and Bongaigaon in Assam. The GCPA, in spite of its respective demand for separate states, has cooperated in the past with the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha and the Kamtapur Progressive Party, which strive for the creation of Gorkhaland and Kamtapur states respectively.
The GCPA supporters, led by Barman, continued their agitation at the New Cooch Behar railway station, a railway official said, adding, many of the agitators were squatting on the rail tracks. “It is true that the passengers are suffering. But we, the people of Cooch Behar, have been suffering for 66 years,” he added. Reacting to the protest that has crippled railway services in North Bengal, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee told Indian Express, “We are aware of the protests and we are taking requisite steps.” Nripendra Bhattacharya, the North East Frontier Railway spokesperson said, “Local trains between New Jalpaiguri (NJP)-Coochbehar section have been cancelled as the main line was closed. However, all major long distance trains have been diverted via New Bongaigaon-Samoktola, Alipurduar, Siliguri and NJP junction routes.” Officials added that the Coochbehar-Changrabanda-Siliguri train service, to be inaugurated today, has also been cancelled. Meanwhile, among diverting, short-terminating long distance trains, the Uttarbanga Express was being run from New Jalpaiguri instead of New Cooch Behar and Teesta Torsha Express from NJP instead of New Alipurduar, an NFR official said in Cooch Behar. -
The movement for a seperate statehood for Cooch Behar has at its heart, the allegation that the inclusion of Cooch Behar into West Bengal was “illegal” and against the treaty made by the Government of India and the King of Cooch Behar Maharaja Jagadwipendra Narayan on the 28th Aug 1949. In September 2005, the statehood movement had reached its zenith after over three lakh supporters had begun an indefinite hunger strike, but after continuing for five days the movement was crushed by violent police action – that saw a number of deaths, including a police officer. Thereafter, the then Left Front government implemented a series of arrests and top leaders of the movement including Barman were sent to prison. Barman, in 2009, had contested the Lok Sabha elections and become the first undertrial prisoner to file his nomination papers for a parliamentary election in the state and ultimately obtained 37,226 votes (3.3%)
