The Southern Railway, Salem Division, has announced that The Nilgiris Mountain Railway service between Mettupalayam and Coonoor will remain suspended for one more day on Saturday as Thursday’s landslip near the Kallar Railway Station has damaged the railway tracks.
Sources said that though the workers had begun restoration operations on Friday, rains had made it difficult to complete the work in a day.
The work would continue on Saturday as well and as a result, the train service would be suspended for a day more. The workers had used explosives to blast the boulders to remove them from the track and replace the damaged portions of the rails. More than 20 workers were engaged in the task. The services are likely to resume on Sunday. On Thursday, passengers returning from Udhagamandalam to

Mettupalayam were asked to get off the train near the Kallar station and board buses to continue their onward journey.
Special Correspondent from Udhagamandalam adds: The current wet spell, marked by almost continuous torrential rain, especially in Kotagiri, Coonoor and their surroundings, has triggered a number of run-offs. Though they present a pretty picture along the winding Ooty-Kotagiri-Mettupalayam road and the Coonoor-Mettupalayam highway, it reflects poorly on the watershed management, according to knowledgeable sources.Speaking to The Hindu they pointed out that tourists should be warned not to go near the run-offs as the ground would be slippery.

BOKARO: Another railway track was blown up by Maoists in Bokaro's Bermo sub-division on Monday night, only 12 hours after a portion of a track in Dhanbad railway division was exploded.
Birender Bahadur Singh, DRM, Dhanbad railway division, said the tracks were blasted a few minutes after the Chandrapura-bound goods train passed. "Maoists might have targeted the train but fortunately they missed it. The explosion was strong as it damaged overhead wires, sleepers and around 2.5 feet tracks," he said, adding that it created a crater about 1m deep. The Maoists, who are protesting against the arrest of their leader Mukhlal Mahto, targeted a tank wagon on Tuesday but it had a close shave as the explosive went off after the wagon crossed the stretch. "Maoists usually target railway tracks between Daniya and Jageshwar Vihar railway stations because the area

is densely forested. This is first time that they blasted tracks under Bokaro Thermal police station," said RPF inspector K Kashyap.
Railway services on Gomoh-Barakakhana track were disrupted for around six hours and Shaktipunj Express was diverted from Moori-Barkakhana on Tuesday. "Services were restored by 9 am. Freight services were mainly affected," said the DRM.

रांची/बोकारो। झारखंड में माओवादियों की ओर से बुलाए गए बंद के आखिरी समय में सोमवार की रात नक्सलियों ने पौने बारह बजे गोमो-बरकाकाना (रांची - बोकारो मेन रूट) रेलखंड में बोकारो थर्मल जारंगडीह रेलवे स्टेशन के बीच बारूदी सुरंग से रेल पटरी उड़ा दी। विस्फोट की आवाज इतनी तेज थी कि लगभग 5 किमी दूर तक लोगों ने उसे सुना। इस घटना से रेल ट्रैक दो टुकड़ों में बंट गया। साथ ही ट्रैक से लगी कनेक्शन पटरी 10 मीटर दूर जा गिरी। विस्फोट स्थल पर गड्ढा होने के साथ 7 मीटर हाइटेंशन तार भी उड़ गया। पोल संख्या 39-18 39/19 के बीच लगभग ढाई फीट रेल पटरी उड़ गई। इससे इस मार्ग से रेल यातायात लगभग 14 घंटे तक ठप रहा। कई ट्रेनें जहां की तहां रोक दी गयी। इससे हजारों की संख्या में यात्री परेशान हुए।

नक्सलियों का मंसूबा नाकाम
विस्फोट की घटना से महज 15 मिनट पूर्व डीजल टैंकर ले जा रही मालगाड़ी उक्त रेल मार्ग से गुजरी थी। अगर उस समय विस्फोट होता तो रेलवे को और ज्यादा क्षति होती। नक्सलियों की मंशा रेल पटरी उड़ा कर जबलपुर-हावड़ा शक्तिपुंज एक्सप्रेस को क्षति पहुंचाने की थी। मगर यह संयोग ही रहा कि जारंगडीह पश्चिमी केबिन के पास सिग्नल नहीं मिलने के कारण उक्त डीजल टैंकर लेकर चल रही मालगाड़ी रुकी हुई थी। इसी दरम्यान विस्फोट हो गया जो रेल इंजन से मात्र लगभग 250 मीटर दूरी पर था। इस कारण मालगाड़ी के चालक ने विस्फोट, धुआं आग की लपटों को देखा तो तत्काल इसकी सूचना जारंगडीह रेलवे स्टेशन को दी। इस तरह स्टेशन प्रबंधक ने अन्य अधिकारियों को सूचित कर बड़ी घटना होने से बचा लिया।
रद्द हुई ट्रेनें

घटना के कारण बरकाकाना-गोमा पैसेंजर एवं गोमो-चोपन पैसेंजर को रद्द कर दिया गया। वहीं शक्तिपुंज एक्सप्रेस को रात 12.15 बजे बरकाकाना में ही रोक लिया गया। बाद में उसे दूसरे रूट से कोलकाता के लिए भेजा गया।

बेरमो पुलिस ने की जांच
घटना की सूचना पाकर बेरमो डीएसपी मनोज कुमार राय, केडी राय, बोकारो थर्मल थाना प्रभारी लक्ष्मीकांत, गांधीनगर थाना प्रभारी मनोज तिवारी घटनास्थल पहुंचे। उन्होंने आसपास के क्षेत्रों में छापामारी अभियान भी चलाया, लेकिन कोई सुराग नहीं मिला। यहां लगभग 5 बजे सुबह बरकाकाना के आरपीएफ कमांडेंट यूके तिवारी, इंस्पेक्टर आरआर कश्यप, स्पेशल इंटेलीजेंस ब्यूरो सुनील राम भी घटनास्थल पर पहुंचे।
सुबह पहुंचा दुर्घटना राहत यान
यहां गोमो से दुर्घटना राहत यान मंगलवार सुबह लगभग छह बजे पहुंचा। तब रेल पटरी की मरम्मत का काम शुरू किया जा सका। इस मार्ग से शाम लगभग 4 बजे के बाद ही रेल परिचालन शुरू हो सका। इस कारण इस मार्ग से गुजरने वाली बरकाकाना-गोमो पैसेंजर, गोमो-चोपन वाराणसी अप डाउन ट्रेन पैसेंजर, गोमो-बरकाकाना अप डाउन पैसेंजर ट्रेन सहित कई मालगाडिय़ों का परिचालन प्रभावित हुआ।

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.

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.
