Nashik: Railway protection force (RPF) aboard LTT – Vishakhapatnam (Super Express) apprehended three out of four robbers who attempted to run away after committing a crime in a moving train near Padali railway station.
According to RPF officials, the jawans were deputed to monitor the train. They suspected a theft to have taken place, as the train slowed down around 3.30 am on Tuesday, in the jungles between Igatpuri and Padali railway stations, where the track nears the highway.
“Even before the train stopped, three persons were seen jumping off the train and
running away. Two jawans chased them in the dark and caught one of the four,” the officials said.
During interrogation Aditya Mahesh Kumar (19), a resident of Thakurli confessed to snatching a purse. The RPF officers also said they sought assistance from Igatpuri RPF and government railway police (GRP) teams. Near the highway, the teams found two persons seeking to hitchhike vehicles travelling towards Mumbai.
“When the teams accosted them, they tried to run away but they were eventually caught,” the officials added.
The two arrested are Shera Ganesh Sing (20) and Raju Chandramani Kushwah (20) from Thakurli. The modus of operandi of the gang is to board a train at Kalyan, identify the victims, and pull the chain at places where the railway track is near the highway.
“As the train is about to stop, they snatched valuables from the victims, jump from the moving train and run away,” the officer added.
All three have been remanded to police custody after being presented at the local court.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
