Woman techie killed, 14 hurt in twin train blasts in Chennai

Woman techie killed, 14 hurt in twin train blasts in Chennai
The two low-intensity bombs that went off in S4 and S5 sleeper coaches of Bangalore-Guwahati Express about ten minutes after the train pulled into the platform on Thursday morning, triggered chaotic scenes with panic stricken-passengers scurrying for safety.

The woman killed in the mishap has been identified as Swathi, employed with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in Bangalore, and was travelling to her home town Guntur in Andhra Pradesh along with a friend, police said. Fourteen injured persons, including two critically wounded, are undergoing treatment at state-run Rajiv Gandhi General Hospital.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu government has refused to take any help offered by the Centre in the probe into the twin explosions in a train in Chennai Central railway station and it appears that the state is not treating it as a terror attack ‘as of now’.  The Centre had to abort its plans to send in forensic experts and investigators from NSG and NIA to Chennai as chief minister J Jayalalithaa is strongly opposed to any interference from Central agencies on the subject of law and order.
