Mamata Asks for Report on Burning of Trains

Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, while describing ransacking of a railway station in Bihar as “mischievous”, has for a comprehensive report on the incidence in which villagers set some bogies of two trains ablaze on Monday.

“I don’t know how it happened. It was misinformation. I find it mischievous. I have asked for a complete report,” Banerjee told media persons.

It may be mentioned that a mob of villagers, irked over withdrawal of halt of the Rajgir-New Delhi Shramajivi Express at Khusrupur railway station, nearly 32 km from Patna, had on Monday set afire the station building and also uprooted tracks.

Later, the Railway Board had made it clear that no train stoppages would be withdrawn in Bihar and that the decision to review the halts was not taken either by the Board or by her, Banerjee said.

“Decisions to provide or withdraw stoppages are taken locally at the zonal level,” Railway Board Member (Traffic) Sri Prakash had explained.
