Maoists blew up a portion of a railway track in Jharkhand's Bokaro District, which resulted in the disruption of train services.
State police said the rebels destroyed about 1.5 meters of track due to which passenger trains were held up at different points.
Railway Divisional Manager B.K. Singh said train services will resume after the damaged track is repaired.
"Four inches of both tracks have been damaged. After restoration, normal traffic would continue," he said.
Police also confirmed the recovery of a 15 kilogram can bomb hidden below an over bridge on National Highway-2 at Chittarpur.

He added that a bomb disposal squad was called from Hazaribagh to defuse the bomb.

लखनऊ। रेल राज्य मंत्री मनोज सिन्हा के संसदीय क्षेत्र गाजीपुर से लगे पूर्व मध्य रेलवे के दानापुर मंडल में मुगलसराय-पटना रेल मार्ग पर खतरों से खेला जा रहा है। कल रात करीब 11:30 बजे धीना व सकलडीहा स्टेशन के बीच अप लाइन में हावड़ा-नई दिल्ली राजधानी एक्सप्रेस से चटकी पटरी से गुजरी। जानकारी होने पर दानापुर नियंत्रण कक्ष में अफरातफरी मच गई, लेकिन थोड़ी देर बाद मामला शांत हो गया।
एक घटे तक इस रूट पर अप लाइन का परिचालन बाधित था। आननफानन चटकी पटरी पर रेल कर्मियों ने क्लैंप बाध कर कॉशन के जरिये ट्रेनों को एक घटे बाद 12.30 बजे मुगलसराय की ओर रवाना किया। इसके बाद रेल कर्मियों ने राहत की सास ली। सूत्रों के अनुसार कोलकाता से नई दिल्ली जा रही अप राजधानी एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन के चालक ने सकलडीहा स्टेशन को पटरी पर झटका लगने की सूचना

Patna: A shutdown in Bihar on Tuesday to protest the arrest of three men for the alleged gang-rape of six Mahadalit women has hit rail and road traffic, police said.
The shutdown was called by the Akhil Bharatiya Rashtrawadi Kisan Sanghathan.
Hundreds of activists headed by slain Ranvir Sena chief Brahmeshwar Singh's son Indu Bhusan disrupted road traffic and blocked railway tracks, affecting half a dozen trains.
"Protestors forcibly stopped Jan-Sadharan Express and Patna-Pune Express at Ara railway station for hours," an official said.
Bhojpur Superintendent of Police Rajesh Kumar said: "Sangathan workers forcibly stopped trains at the Ara railway station by squatting on the tracks and disrupted train traffic at other places."

Indu Bhusan heads the Sanghathan, the political wing of the outlawed Ranvir Sena that was founded by Brahmeshwar Singh.
They have demanded a CBI probe into the alleged gang-rape of six Mahadalit women, all rag-pickers, who were allegedly gang-raped at gun point in Bhojpur district's Kurmuri village early this month.
One of the three arrested, Neel Nidhi Singh, is a former commander of Ranvir Sena.
However, a district administration official said the shutdown evoked mixed response and only partially hit normal life in Ara, district headquarters of Bhojpur.
He said the Sangathan's members took to the streets to enforce the shutdown in Ara and blocked several roads, crippling the movement of vehicles on Ara-Patna and Ara-Sasaram roads.
Protestors also raised slogans against the state government and burnt effigies of Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi and former chief minister Nitish Kumar.

n the light of the restoration activities taken up o­n a war-footing to repair the breaches to Railway track near Narsingapalli in the aftermath of the recent Hudhud cyclone, SCR is formulating a standard protocol o­n effectively handling any emergency situation arising out of cyclones in future.
Shri P.K.Srivastava, General Manager/SCR conducted a safety review meeting with all the principal heads of the departments and the Divisional Railway Managers from all the 6 Divisions through video-conferencing at Rail Nilayam, Secunderabad today i.e. o­n 20th October, 2014. During this high level meet, the General Manager critically reviewed the response of Railways to the emergency caused by Hudhud cyclone last week. While complimenting the Railway officials for quick restoration of track, he underscored the need to ensure that the Railway track structure withstands the fury of nature, especially

by making the track non-susceptible to breaches due to heavy rains etc.
SCR has restored the affected Railway track within 32 hours by quickly mobilizing resources o­n a massive scale to tackle track breaches over a length of 350 meters o­n Visakhapatnam Rail route last week. Shri P.K.Srivastava, directed the Divisional Railway Managers to study in detail the topography and the geographical conditions in the vicinity of Railway track and vital installations situated in cyclone-prone areas. He emphasized that preventive measures such as appropriate diversion of nearby canals; proper de-silting of cross culverts passing across the track; provision of adequate water way at narrow cross culverts where water gushes across the Railway track with more force; and putting in place additional pipes and mesh/stone pitching near the track etc. shall be taken o­n priority to avoid the possibility of erosion of earth or breaches to Railway track.
The General Manager instructed the senior officials concerned to thoroughly inspect the vulnerable areas and undertake corrective works to avoid any scope for track getting affected in case of cyclones/heavy rains.Close liaison shall be maintained with the local State Government officials, especially the Irrigation officials to assess the likely impact of the canals, tanks and other water bodies near by the Railway track in areas with past history of breaches.
In this connection, SCR has initiated the process of preparing a standard protocol containing details of micro-level plans o­n the preventive measures to be taken; the preparatory steps to be put in place; mobilization of men and material well in advance to meet any emergency situation; and also clearly defined roles of various agencies/staff involved in the relief and restoration activities etc. This standard protocol can serve as a handy guide for immediately launching an effective and efficient response and also for avoiding disruption to Rail traffic in emergency situations such as cyclones/heavy rains.

Millions of travellers have been hit by one of the largest railway strikes in Germany which crippled train services across the country. More than 70 per cent of train services were cancelled on Saturday , the first day of a two-day strike, making it biggest since 2008. The strike has been called by the locomotive drivers’ trade union GDL to press its demands for higher salary and improved working conditions.
The strike, which is the second within a week, forced the German rail operator Deutsche Bahn (DB) to drastically reduce or to shut down its regional train services, long—distance trains, suburban railways, city shuttle services and freight train services in several regions.
Hundreds of travellers stranded at the main railway hubs in Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich have been offered the possibility

to stay overnight in some of the sleeping cars of the railways, the DB said.
The state—owned rail operator said it expected further disruption in its services on Sunday and this to continue until the strike ends on Monday early morning. The DB has worked out a special railway schedule for the duration of the strike and offered stranded passengers the possibility to get a refund of their tickets or to make fresh reservations without additional costs, the statement said.PTI

Visakhapatnam (VSKP): Managing railways is tricky, particularly after a cyclone of the nature of Hudhud ripped apart the infrastructure, rolling stock and the tracks. Though the Waltair Division of the East Coast Railway has recovered from the impact of the cyclone, it is yet to become fully operational. Lack of enough power to overhead power traction is posing a new problem. In a free-wheeling chat with R Prithvi Raj, Waltair Divisional Railway Manager Anil Kumar explains the challenges he had to face (Excerpts - Courtesy: Indian Express)
What is the situation now?
We have recovered considerably. The railway staff rose to the occasion. Things are falling in place though in some areas, a lot needs to be done. The cyclone has damaged not only railway tracks and overhead electric traction, but also
...

passenger amenities at railway stations and staff quarters.
What was your first priority after the cyclone struck?
Our first priority was to clear obstructions on the railway tracks. Our Divisional Engineer rushed at 10 p.m. Sunday, the day the cyclone hit us, with tree cutters and overhead traction repair staff. By 2 p.m. the next day all obstructions were cleared and electric traction was repaired, ready to receive power. By 7 p.m. we ran the first train between Visakhapatnam and Vizianagaram. For us, this is a record.
Now that passenger trains have been restored, what is your next area of importance?
We are concentrating on operation of goods trains. Though overhead traction is back to normal, the APTransco is not in a position to supply adqeuate power. In our division, we draw power at seven stations. For each station, we need 50 MW. But AP Transco is able to supply only five MW. So we are giving priority to passenger trains and as a result, goods train services are being hit.
Why are you not using diesel locomotives for hauling goods trains?
Though we have enough number of electric locomotives, we are not able to use them fully because there is not enough power. Now we have to run our goods trains with diesel locomotives but we have very few of them. We have requisitioned diesel locomotives from other railways. In fact, we have some but not enough because other railways are not able to spare as they need them for their regular operations. As we have a diesel locomotive shed here which has a capacity of 212 locomotives, we have at present some diesel locomotives but they are not enough.
How is power shortage affecting your goods train movement?
Take for instance, the Kothavalasa-Kirandul line. For running one rake, we have to use three electric locomotives because the line runs on a very high gradient. But APTranco is giving me only 5 MW per station. That is not enough for me to run passenger as well as freight trains. We used to load 40-45 rakes every day before the cyclone. We are not able to load even 24 now.
In fact, immediately after the cyclone, the rake loading ranged between 12 and 10. In KK line, we used to load up to 24 rakes per day but now it has come down to 12 as we have to use a detour to move the goods and use diesel locomotives which are less in number.
What was the extent of damage to Railways in the entire division?
Property damage works out to about Rs 80 crore and loss of revenue about Rs 350 crore. As we are not able to run full complement of goods trains, we are losing revenue heavily. We have suffered damage to four of our important assets. They are: Electro Locomotive, Diesel Locomotive, Coach and Wagon Maintenance facilities. The cyclone had hit them with brutal force with the result that the facilities have been damaged The roofs were blown away and the equipment too was damaged.

Visakhapatnam (VSKP): A mammoth operation is on to restore a portion of the bridge between Tyada and Araku on the Kothavalasa-Kirandul railway track (KK Line) considered the lifeline of the Waltair Division of the East Coast Railway.
A part of the bridge was blown away by Cyclone Hudhud on October 12. Restoration work is tricky and challenging as the bridge is located right above a deep gorge on the hilly terrain.
The K K line has the distinction of being the second highest railway line in the country, after the one in Jammu. The highest point of the railway line is at Simliguda, which is 996 m from the mean sea level.
The 438-km-long K K line is important because it transports iron

ore from Bacheli and Kirandul mines of the National Mineral Development Corporation in Chhattisgarh. Usually, 12 rakes, each consisting of 59 wagons, bring iron ore to Visakhapatnam almost every day. A part of the ore is used by the steel plant here and the rest is exported from the Visakhapatnam Port Trust.
Senior Divisional Engineer (Central), Waltair Division (ECOR) Mr.G.Nagabhusan Rao (second from left) is at site for monitoring works
Senior Divisional Engineer (Central), Waltair Division (ECOR) Mr.G.Nagabhusan Rao (second from left) is at site on ‘Mission Restoration’ monitoring works day and night
As the K K line is not available now, only about six or seven rakes are being moved to Visakhapatnam via Koraput and Rayagada. Because of the reduced freight volume, the Waltair Division is losing a revenue of Rs.20 crore per day.
On the day the cyclone struck, the winds and downpour triggered landslides on hilly slopes damaging the track at several places. The most debilitating was the landslide that hit the bridge. Under its impact, an 80-ft-long girder in the middle of the bridge, whose total length is 165 ft, came off.
The challenge before the railways is not only to find a new girder but also to set it up to restore the bridge. After frantic inquires, officials found the girder and it is now being modified to suit the requirement. The original bridge had a curvature of 8 degrees and the new girder is being modified accordingly.
The KK line was laid in 1965 by the Japanese. The technology they used was unique because the terrain on which the line has to be laid was very inhospitable. Now using the technology, the new girder has to be placed and joined with the rest of the bridge. The railways have moved supports (cribs) which are being set up from the bottom of the gorge to a height of 20 metres to support the girder and once the girder is in place, the cribs could be removed. “The entire task is very daunting but we are confident of doing it by the middle of November,” Waltair Divisional Railway Manager Anil Kumar said.

इसके चलते यह ट्रेन होडल से शोलाका स्टेशन के बीच जंगल में खड़ी हो गई। इस एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन के पीछे मथुरा-गाजियाबाद ईएमयू शटल भी चल रही थी। लेकिन एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन के रुकने से ईएमयू शटल भी वहां रुकी रही। करीब 45 मिनट बाद एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन के ड्राइवर ने खराब इंजन से प्रीमियम एक्सप्रेस को शोलाका स्टेशन तक पहुंचाया। इसके बाद ही ईएमयू शटल अपने गंतव्य के लिए रवाना हुई। इससे लोकल ट्रेन करीब एक घंटा देरी से अपने गंतव्य तक पहुंची।
उधर, रेलवे प्रशासन ने बाद में प्रीमियम एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन के लिए एक और इंजन की व्यवस्था की। इसके बाद ही यह एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन अपने गंतव्य के लिए रवाना हुई। इस अव्यवस्था के चलते दैनिक यात्रियों को भारी परेशानी झेलनी पड़ी। दैनिक यात्री एवं होडल के रहने वाले सूरजभान, आली ब्राह्मण के मोहित के मुताबिक रेलवे अधिकारियों को ईएमयू ट्रेन इससे पहले ही रवाना कर देनी चाहिए थी, लेकिन रेल विभाग की इस अव्यवस्था के चलते हजारों यात्रियों को भारी परेशानी हुई है।

MUMBAI: A special court that conducted the trial of seven synchronized train blasts in Mumbai in 2006 reserved the judgment in the case on Friday. The trial of 13, accused of causing the July 11 blasts that ripped first class compartments in suburban trains killing 209 people, is over and the verdict will be pronounced at a date to be fixed by the court.
Eight years since Mumbai's deadliest train terror attacks, the trial had seen many twists and turns with questions raised by the defence about the prosecution case.
The prosecution has to prove "beyond reasonable doubt'' its case in court to nail the accused on trial as conspirators and planters of the bombs. The accused had fought for call data records to be released and in December 2012 won a

significant order from the Bombay high court to get it. The data, they said, pointed how four alleged planters were in fact not in the vicinity of Churchgate station on the day of the attack.
The case was tried under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) and was presided over by special judge Y D Shinde.
The prosecution had examined 200 witnesses in the case, while the defence advocates examined 40 witnesses. Special public prosecutor Raja Thakare had conducted the trial and examined witnesses to compile "strong and cogent evidence" in court.
The Anti-Terrorism Squ-ad (ATS) had arrested 13 accused in the case and all were in prison during the trial. A major point of contention between the two sides has been the alleged confessions of the accused.
The prosecution has heavily relied on confession statements to prove the complicity of the accused, but the accused maintained the confessions are fake and cannot be considered as evidence.It is one of the first cases where the defence filed queries under the RTI Act to prove the innocence of the accused. The police had rounded up Muslim youth for investigation, attracting criticism from the community.

Trains that were detained at Nagercoil were operated one after the other.Due to the delay, hundreds of passengers were stranded in Nagercoil and other intermediate stations towards Thiruvananthapuram and Chennai for more than five hours.Public found it difficult to get proper information on the delay from railway authorities, as the enquiry number 244142 was not in use.
