October 11, around 3 am, when the Hyderabad - Thiruvananthapuram Sabari Express left Katpadi station, a gang of six masked persons entered three reserved coaches and woke up women passengers who were sleeping. They snatched gold chains weighing about 20 sovereigns from five passengers at knifepoint.
The robbery incident took place within five minutes and even before passengers could raise an alarm, the robbers pulled the emergency chain and got down. Later, they escaped in a car parked near the railway track.
Following this incident, a team of top railway officials inspected  Katpadi and Jolarpet railway stations and reviewed the security arrangements.
Balakrishnan, DSP, Government railway police, Salem, said trains move at snail’s space during track change from Katpadi station. “So, robbers board the train mostly near the home signal on both sides. So, two armed police personnel have been deployed at home signals of Katpadi junction” he said.
Preliminary investigation revealed that interstate robbers were involved in the incident. The CBCID which cracked the Chennai - Salem train robbery incident that occurred on August 8, 2016 had already warned the GRP over the presence of inter-State robbers across Tamil Nadu. Two persons from Madhya Pradesh were arrested a few days ago in connection with the train heist.
Prior Incidents:

Trial run of Road Railer, a bi-modal transportation unit, which runs as a semi-trailer on road and as a wagon on rail was conducted between Melpakkam and Katpadi section of Chennai Division of Southern Railway on 19th September, 2018.
Road-railers will offer a holistic logistics solution in diverting cargo traffic from road to rail and to offer seamless door-to-door goods transportation.
Kirloskar Pneumatic Co Ltd (KPCL), a Kirloskar Group Company, in association with the Southern Railway conducted a dry run between Melpakkam and Katpadi.

KPCL will bring in the investment and provide these specially designed Road Railers for the Railways, which will operate and maintain them. The first- and last-mile (road) operations of the Rail Railers will be taken care by KPCL and its strategic partners.
The Road Railer concept works like this - Goods loaded on to a Road Railer unit in a godown travel by road, and is then directly coupled with railway wagons at the terminal . The unit (with wheels attached as in a normal truck) will be moved by rail and decoupled from the wagon at the receiving end, and attached to a truck to be moved on to the final destination.
Southern Railway will shortly announce the commercial run of Road Railer between Chennai Port and Palwal, the two Road Railer terminals established by KPCL. This move will open new streams of traffic facilitating imports as well as exports.
