After hostage drama, Rajdhani Express reaches Delhi
New Delhi: The New Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express, which was seized by armed Maoist-backed tribal activists in West Bengal, arrived here this evening.
The Bhubaneshwar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express arrived at
the New Delhi station around 7 PM, nine hours and fifty
minutes behind the schedule.
The train was seized by tribals in West Midnapore
district yesterday but was freed by security forces after a
five-hour hostage drama.
The activists, under the aegis of a Lalgarh group
People`s Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA), also took
control of the two drivers in an unprecedented step to demand
the release of their jailed leader Chhatradhar Mahato.
