Pretending to be their Syrian handler, ahead of bombing of Ujjain-bound train, he helped to secure the arrest of three IS sympathisers
On March 7, the Madhya Pradesh police arrested three men — Danish Akhtar, Syed Mir Hussain and Atif Muzaffar — from Pipariya, around 300 km from Bhopal, for allegedly planting a pipe bomb on the Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train. Nine people were injured in the explosion.
The bomb was planted around 8.30 a.m. at the Bhopal railway station and it exploded around one-and-half-hours later when the train reached the Shajapur station.

on inputs
Within hours, the Madhya Pradesh police announced that the three men, who had planted the bomb in the passenger train, had been arrested on the basis of information provided by Central intelligence agencies.
Four others were arrested from Uttar Pradesh while one man, Saifullah, was killed in an encounter in Thakurganj area of Lucknow the same night.
U.P. ADG Daljit Singh Chaudhary told a news agency a day later that the Telangana police had provided specific intelligence about the whereabouts of the group, who were inspired by the Islamic State. A senior Home Ministry official told The Hindu that the accused were caught within hours as they were being trailed by a Telangana police officer.
The police officer followed the accused from Lucknow when they boarded the Pushpak Express on March 6 and even when they got down at the Bhopal railway station.
“This officer had penetrated the various social media platforms the group used to search for information related to the Islamic State. All of them are self-radicalised and they even made several attempts to go to Syria and even to Kashmir for jihad. When they failed, they decided to do something in India,” the Ministry official said.
Gaining their trust
The Telangana officer gained their trust and pretended to be their Syria-based handler.
The DGP, Telangana, Anurag Sharma, could not be contacted for comment, despite repeated attempts.
“The accused told their handler they wanted to procure explosives and weapons. They downloaded al-Qaeda’s propaganda magazine Inspire and IS’s magazine Dabiq to learn how to prepare the bomb. They made the bomb at the rented house in Lucknow, where Saifullah was killed. On March 7, three of them boarded Pushpak Express from Lucknow and wanted to plant the bomb in it. Seeing the crowd, they dropped the plan and travelled till Bhopal in the Mumbai-bound train,” the official said.

He is understood to have left the train at Vapi station in Gujarat, Sena sources said. However, it was not clear whether he headed for Mumbai or Osmanabad, his constituency.

to railway officials, Mr. Gaikwad, with two companions, boarded the August Kranti Rajdhani Express from Hazrat Nizamuddin at 6.55 p.m. on Friday.
“Once the train started from Delhi, he started complaining of chest pain and asked the train staff for a doctor. We provided him a doctor at the very next station in Mathura, where the doctor told him that he was completely fine,” said a senior Western Railway official.

However, according to railway staff, the constant presence of media persons at every station caused a disturbance to fellow passengers who soon began complaining.
Passengers from adjoining compartments also complained of media harassment. A passenger who didn’t want to be quoted and was in the same compartment said, “This is just not done. Just because we are travelling with some leader, we have to face so many disturbances. We are common people and need peace.

Southern Railway women to fight it out with Chhattisgarh
Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) registered an 84-64 win over Army Service Corps (ASC), Karnataka, in the men’s semifinal of the 31st Federation Cup basketball championship here on Saturday.
Only the other day G.R.L. Prasad, the ASC coach, had said that it would be a bit easy for his men if they were to meet IOB in the semifinal. But the bankmen proved a tough nut to crack.
The
...

opening minutes of the first quarter was far more open with both teams trying to create a strong first impression.
But midway through, IOB called the shots. Some impressive layups by S. Prasanna Venkatesh (16 points) and the ever-reliable Rikin Pethani (29 pts) put the team in command.
ASC fought hard but failed to control the boards at crucial junctures.
In the second also, IOB maintained a sizeable lead. In the fourth quarter, Rikin and Prasanna went flat out to take the team to a 73-56 lead.
And ASC had no answers to IOB’s tactical plan and final rush.
In the women’s section, favourite Southern Railway defeated Tamil Nadu 73-67 for a place in the final.
The host had in its roster a set of talented individuals but lacked the height and the sting to trouble its opponent in the first session.
R. Rajapriyadarshini, D. Anitha Priya and Renjini Peter were the pillars of strength for Railways during that period. The experienced Renjini, in fact, is returning to the side after a nine-month injury layoff. And, she played her role to great perfection.
Railways, with virtually no bench strength to back its efforts, implemented its strategies with caution and care.
The scoring rate was not to its expectations but with great understanding and excellent court coverage the team managed to stay afloat for most part.
In the final, Southern Railway will take on Chhattisgarh, which scored a thrilling 99-98 win over a fighting West Bengal.
The results (semifinals):
Men: IOB 84 (Rikin Pethani 29, Prasanna Venkatesh 16) bt Army Service Corps (Karnataka) 64 (Jeethandar Singh 19, Issac T. Thomas 15); ONGC (Uttarakhand) 72 bt Indian Air Force 49.
Women: Southern Rly 73 (D. Anitha Priya 25, R. Raja Priyadarshini 14) bt Tamil Nadu 67 (R. Varshanandhini 22, M. Keerthi 17); Chhattisgarh 99 bt West Bengal 98.
