Ranchi : South Eastern Railway authorities have decided to shunt the senior divisional operations manager of Ranchi railway division after a high-level inquiry found that he had indeed used his clout to stop the New Delhi-Bhubaneswar Rajdhani Express at an unscheduled station to allow his daughter on board last week.
A.K. Goel, general manager of South Eastern Railway, told this correspondent over phone today that they had taken "strong exception" to the three-minute episode, reported in The Telegraph on October 21, when the high-profile train was rerouted and halted at Muri junction, 60km from Ranchi.

Exemplary punishment is really required to stop IR being operated as departmental/personal fiefdom. It really needs a lot of courage/over confidence to play with a prestigious train like Rajdhani.
A 2000 km electrified trunk line shall cost about 50,000 Crore Rs, and less than 24 hrs (some hours has to be kept for maintenance) by way of timeslot for running trains is the the vital thing which IR get to recover the cost and earn profits. So every minute cost is valuable. IR realise it very well. Slowing down of a train slows down all the trains following it.
