Prabhu writes to Rajnath for NIA probe into train derailments

Suspecting the possibility of sabotage in the recent spate of train derailments, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has written to Home Minister Rajnath Singh seeking a detailed probe by the National Investigating Agency into the incidents.

In the letter, he made a mention of Hirakhand Express derailment near Kuneru station in Andhra Pradesh, two goods trains that went off the track earlier this month on the Koraput-Kirandul section, "cooker bomb" at Ghorasahan station, detection of deep cuts on tracks near Kanpur on January 1 and the obstruction on tracks on a rail bridge between Barauni-Samastipur stations on Monday.

Citing the derailment of Indore-Patna Express in Kanpur in which around 150 people were killed, he said: "Bihar police unearthed a conspiracy to train some persons in the country to tamper with railway tracks to cause train derailments and (their) possible involvement in the accident near Kanpur."
