दुमका के लिए ट्रेन खुली लेकिन पहले दिन यात्रियों को दुमका का टिकट ही नहीं मिला। इसकी वजह यह थी कि गुरुवार तक दुमका स्टेशन का किराया मुख्यालय से रेलवे के यूटीएस सिस्टम में फीड नहीं किया गया था। ऐसे में यात्री या तो बिना टिकट के गए या फिर हंसडीहा तक का ही टिकट लिया। हर खेप के बाद बोगियों पर बदल रहा नाम: दुमका पैसेंजर ट्रेन के लिए अलग से रैक नहीं है। इसलिए इस ट्रेन की रैक दूसरे रूट की ट्रेन के रैक को शेयर कर चलायी जा रही है। दुमका से लौटने के बाद इस ट्रेन की रैक बांका जाती है जबकि बांका से लौटने के बाद यही रैक हंसडीहा रूट पर रवाना होती है। ट्रेनों को रवाना करने से पहले गार्ड और ड्राइवर ही नहीं, ट्रेन का नाम भी बदलना पड़ता है।

The court says this will become a "bad practice."
The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to entertain a plea of the father of Swathi murder case accused P. Ramkumar, who allegedly committed suicide in jail, to have an independent expert present at the time of his son's autopsy, saying this will become a "bad practice".
"We cannot allow you that. Tell us if you want an independent medical board... tell us if you want an independent person on the medical board. We are with you... But private doctors can never be allowed," Justice

J.S. Khehar, at the head of a bench consisting of Justice Arun Mishra, observed.
The court asked advocates Kamini Jaiswal and S. Rajanikanth, counsel for Ramkumar's father R. Paramasivan, whether he had apprehensions if the doctors were biased or if they were not good enough or if the hospital was not good.
Ms. Jaiswal replied that the post mortem is being conducted by government doctors, who are under the State government, and they would be biased. The truth about his death — whether he committed suicide by biting into a live wire or whether he was a victim of custodial death inside the central jail — would never be known, they said.
Senior advocates C.A. Sundaram and Subramonium Prasad, appearing for the Tamil Nadu government along with advocate Yogesh Kanna, countered that the Single Judge of the Madras High Court had tried to assuage Mr. Paramasivan's apprehensions by adding one more doctor of the High Court's choice to the team of forensic doctors scheduled to conduct the autopsy before October 1.
Besides, Mr. Sundaram informed that a Division Bench of the High Court had allowed a fifth doctor from the AIIMS to participate in the autopsy.
To this, in an oblique reference to the controversy over the Sunanda Pushkar case, Ms. Jaiswal responded: "There have been instances in sensational cases of AIIMS doctors coming on record saying they were influenced. We want to avoid that situation by having a doctor of our choice present at the post mortem."
"What will your doctor do? He is just one man against five. No. This will become a bad practice," Justice Khehar observed, allowing the father to withdraw his petition.
Mr. Paramasivan approached the Supreme Court after the High Court refused the plea for an independent expert, but nevertheless stayed the autopsy till September 30 for the family to move the Supreme Court.
Justice N. Kirubikaran of the High Court had said that “no one, that too, a person, who lost his only son or has an apprehension regarding the cause of death of his son, should go empty handed, without any relief.” The High Court, had however, directed that the autopsy be conducted not later than on October 1.
Challenging the High Court order giving a deadline for the conduct of post mortem as “erroneous”, Mr. Paramasivan sought a stay of the High Court order till the Supreme Court finally decides his plea for an independent expert.
The petition referred to the 1995 circular of the National Human Rights Commission that had directed all the States and Union Territories to videograph autopsies in custodial death cases and send them to the Commission.
The petition quoted the Gokulraj verdict of the Madras High Court which, in June 2015, allowed the presence of a doctor of the family's choice.
Swathi, a software engineer, was hacked to death in broad daylight while waiting for a suburban train at the Nungambakkam railway station, in Chennai.

अजमेर एक्सप्रेस के खुलने से पहले गुरुवार को स्टेशन पर ट्रेन से गिरकर एक व्यक्ति की मौत हो गई। पूर्णिया डोभी के निवासी जोगिन्द्र मंडल कुछ साथियों के साथ अजमेर एक्सप्रेस से जाने वाले थे। इनके पास जेनरल टिकट था। ट्रेन प्लेटफार्म आने के क्रम में कुछ सेकेंड के लिए रुक गई। पूरी ट्रेन प्लेटफार्म पर नहीं आ सकी थी। जैसे ही ट्रेन रुकी, जोगिन्द्र गेट का पायदान पकड़कर लटक गए। ट्रेन फिर आगे बढ़ी और कुछ ही दूरी पर प्लेटफार्म था। लिहाजा वह प्लेटफार्म और ट्रेन के बीच में फंसकर घसीटते चले गए। जबतक ट्रेन रुकी उनकी मौत हो गई। इस बाबत जीआरपी ने स्टेशन अधीक्षक को पत्र लिखकर बताया है कि ट्रेन प्लेटफार्म पर आने के क्रम में कुछ सेकेंड के लिए रुकी, इसी दौरान यह हादसा हुआ। स्टेशन अधीक्षक का कहना है कि जबतक ट्रेन पूरी तरह से प्लेटफार्म पर आकर रुक न जाए तबतक यात्रियों को चढ़ने...

A combination of man and machine is at work at the breached railway track at this village, digging, levelling, shovelling the boulders of the railway lines to make the track functional from Friday.
It was a truly a test of character as the workers slugged it on the elevated and reinforced bund placing the concrete slabs on the ground and riveting the railway tracks.
It was a week ago that the 2.50-km railway track here developed breach after a great surge of water from a water tank ripped it, minutes after the Vikarabad-

bound Palnadu Expressed chugged away. Thanks to the efforts of a dedicated team of South Central Railway engineers, the track is now open for regular trains from Friday.
Ravindra Gupta, General Manager, SCR, Secunderabad, inspected the track on Thursday morning. Vijay Sharma, Divisional Railway Manager, Guntur, who has been personally monitoring the restoration work, was also present.
The railway ballast light weight engine was run on the tracks at 10 p.m. on Thursday and the first train is expected to roll on at 7.30 am on Friday.
This is the longest breach in the history of South Central Railway in terms of length reminding one of the most tragic railway disasters in recent memory, the Valigonda accident, in which 69 persons were killed when the bogies of Delta Passenger was swept away in flash floods.
This time, a disaster of gigantic proportion had been averted as the Palnadu Express just left the track ten minutes earlier. A surge of water from a nearby irrigation tank crashed into the concrete mound above a Road Under Bridge, sweeping off the railway tracks and shovelling them to a distance of 50 metres.
Within hours, a team of engineers from Guntur and Secunderabad arrived at the spot and took stock of the situation. Later work began and the men the machinery were mobilised within hours. Boulders, metal and dust was procured from local quarries in Perecharla. A road has to be laid from the Guntur-Hyderabad highway to allow trucks. Over 2,000 men and women worked in two shifts to complete the work within four days.
Challenging task
The initial challenge was working in slush and the mud on the track. The reinforcement was done using boulders and metal.
The SCR engineers used Plazer Quick Relaying System to complete the 90,000 cubic metres of earthen work in a record span of four days.

Natpac tasked to carry out traffic study, report to be submitted to KRTL
A two-tier flyover has been proposed from RMS Junction to Chenthitta along the Overbridge-Thampanoor-Killipalam corridor of the NH 66 by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) as part of the proposed elevated Light Metro in the capital.
The lower deck of the flyover, to come up along the median on Overbridge-Thampanoor road, will have two lanes of 5.5 metre each exclusively to facilitate vehicular traffic in both directions.
The

upper deck of the 400-m flyover will be used for the movement of the MRTS proposed along the 21.82-km Technocity-Karamana Light Metro corridor.
The flyover, designed by the DMRC as part of the Light Metro project conceived by it to solve the traffic and transportation problems, will move above the Ponnara Sreedhar Park, parking lot, right side of Thycaud road overbridge and yard of the Central railway station to reach Chenthitta.
The approach roads and the three-arm road overbridge across the railway line leading to Kanyakumari will be widened along with this. Once completed, the Thampanoor side of the road overbridge will have three lanes and the Thycaud and Chenthitta side four lanes each.
Land to the extent of 0.8 hectares has to be acquired for the new flyover and for widening the approach of the road overbridge. The DMRC has estimated that the new flyover and allied works will incur a cost of Rs.180 crore, including Rs. 20 crore for land acquisition.
Design handed over
The design and drawings were handed over by DMRC, the interim consultant to the MRTS project, to the Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Ltd (KRTL) — the special purpose vehicle set up to execute the Light Metro.
At a meeting in the capital on Thursday, the KRTL, DMRC and PWD NH wing officials discussed in detail the way forward to take up the flyover that is pending approval of the government.
Official sources told The Hindu that the National Transportation Planning and Research Centre (Natpac) has been asked to carry out the traffic study on the busy corridor and submit a report to the KRTL.
The move assumes significance as the government has already given the nod to the DMRC, the interim and turn-key consultant, to execute the three flyovers at Sreekariyam, Ulloor and Pattom junctions.
The three flyovers, that will cost Rs.272.68 crore to the exchequer, will carry the Light Metro and vehicular traffic.
