Nagpur: A young couple from here, who were
returning by the ill-fated Jnaneshwari Express after a
honeymoon vacation to Darjeeling, are yet to be traced.

Amit Gajbhiye, an employee at a private firm, and his
wife Anita, a school teacher, were among the passengers who
boarded the Kurla-bound train at Howrah station.

Both had spoken to their parents before leaving for
Nagpur, family said.

In what is believed to be a case of sabotage engineered
by Maoists, 13 coaches of an express train went off the tracks
with five of them crushed by a goods train coming from
opposite direction on May 28.

The death toll had touched 148 yesterday even as more
bodies are being pulled out from the wreckage of the mangled
coaches.

After the news of the mishap broke, parents of the couple
rushed to Nagpur railway station to enquire about their
whereabouts.

They also scanned the list of the dead and injured
travellers admitted in three hospitals at Kharagpur and West
Midnapore, they said.

They reached the mishap spot later and are on the look
out for the couple since then.

"Here family members are anxiously awaiting a call but
even after four days, there is no news from anywhere," they
said.
