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.
Mohd Mukhtar recounted that there was a commotion right

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.
