Two persons were killed and six others injured when two coaches and engine of the Guwahati-bound Capital Express derailed in north Bengal, with initial investigations suggesting that the driver overshot the signal. An inquiry has been ordered into the derailment and three railway employees, including the driver, have been suspended in connection with the mishap.
The train travelling from Bihar's Rajendra Nagar Terminal derailed at around 9 PM last night near Shamuktala Road station, about 32 km from Alipurduar Railway Division headquarters, NF Railway officials said. Initial reports had said that 10 persons were injured. Two bodies were found from the coaches and they appeared to be those of monks going by their clothes and footwear, NF Railway CPRO Pranav Jyoti Sharma

said.
Though prima facie cause of the accident was overshooting of signal by the driver of the train, a thorough inquiry will be conducted and action will be taken against the guilty, said a senior Railway Ministry official. Divisional Railway Manager, Alipurduar, Sanjiv Kishore said three persons - the driver, assistant driver and guard of the train have been suspended. He said work is on to remove the derailed coaches from the track.
Rail traffic, which had been stopped in both up and down lines in a diverted route, is being gradually restored, he added. About 150 of the stranded passengers were taken back to Alipurduar Junction by Kamakhya-Alipurduar Inter City Express. The unaffected portion of the train was detached. The train will resume journey once the relief operation is completed, he said.
The Accident Relief Train reached the site of the accident at 10 PM with railway doctors and relief materials and started rescue operations.

Railways minister SP Prabhu announces Rs 5,000 crore joint venture with Assam government; project to eliminate 12 level crossings between Kamakhya and New Guwahati
BY OUR STAFF REPORTER
GUWAHATI, Nov 10: Announcing a slew of steps for rapid and large scale development of rail connectivity in the Northeastern region, Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Thursday announced a Rs 5,000 crore joint venture with Assam government to construct four elevated railway tracks between Kamakhya and New Guwahati to eliminate 12 level crossing gates in Guwahati city.

made the announcement while laying the foundation stone for the project of doubling of railway line from New Bongaigaon to Kamakhya via Goalpara town and the doubling of railway line from Digaru to Hojai at a glittering function held at the RPF Parade Ground at Maligaon. He also laid the foundation stone for the much-awaited railway electrification project for Raninagar Jalpaiguri – Guwahati via Rangiya railway line and flagged off the first passenger train services on the 10 kilometre Karimganj – Maishashan newly converted broad gauge section in Barak Valley.
Prabhu said construction of the elevated tracks connecting Kamakhya and New Guwahati would decongest city roads, free up railway land and enable railways to develop Guwahati station as a commercial hub. He also said the new projects would keep provisions for connectivity with the proposed metro rail system.
Speaking at the function, Assam Governor Banwarilala Purohit congratulated NF Railway team and the Railway Minister for their success in starting many projects in the Northeast on time.
While thanking the Railway Minister for his initiatives in development of rail network in the Northeast, Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal emphasized on speedy completion of all railway projects in the State. He also requested the Railway Minister to take up construction of railway lines so that every district headquarters of the State is connected by rail. The Chief Minister also requested Prabhu to initiate steps involving the Railways for skill development of the youth of the region.
The 10-km track between Karimganj and Maishashan was converted into broad gauge as part of the Lumding–Badarpur–Silchar gauge conversion project. Only a 30 km stretch between Baraigram and Durlavchera still remains to be converted into broad gauge, but the Railway Minister said this portion would also be converted into broad gauge by May 2017. Two pair of new trains – 55686/55685 Silchar–Maishashan Passenger & 55662/55661 Karimganj–Maishashan Passenger will start operating from tomorrow, he announced.
The doubling of 176-km long New Bongaigaon–Kamakhya railway line was sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 2,232 crore. The section will have 18 stations where construction of new station building and yard remodeling would be taken up.
The doubling of 102-km long Digaru–Hojai railway line was also sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 871 crore. The section has 15 stations. The doubling of Hojai to Lumding section had already been sanctioned for which the Railway Minister of State Rajen Gohain and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had laid foundation stone on September 12 this year.
The project for electrification from Raninagar Jalpaiguri to New Bongaigaon and then from New Bongaigaon to Guwahati was entrusted with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The RVNL will execute the project on turnkey basis at a total cost of Rs 655.55 crore.
The function was also attended by Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain, General Manager of NF Railway Chahatey Ram, General Manager of NF Railway (Construction) HK Jaggi, Chief Managing Director of Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) SC Agnihotri, other senior railway and RVNL officials and a host of invited guests.

Does it include development of GHY RS into international standards?
If not, then spending such a huge amount, what shall be benefits? shall they justify the heavy investment?
Else splurging such a huge amount is surprising, especially when

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.

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%)
