Kolkata: A month after the Jnaneswari
Express disaster, the third and final report of the DNA tests
of the unidentified bodies would be available from Friday.

"If the bodies still remain unclaimed, the West Bengal
government would take appropriate measure to dispose of them,"
West Bengal Director General of Police, Bhupinder Singh said
yesterday.

A total of 148 passengers were killed in the mishap that
occurred on May 28 after a portion of the rail line was
removed, derailing the coaches, and a goods train ramming into
the passenger express.

Speaking about Naxalite Madhusudan Mondal, the zonal
committee secretary of Maoists during the Nandigram movement
who was arrested recently, the DGP said his interrogation had
revealed many names.

"We were after Narayan for the last two years. He and
some others were in-charge of urban affairs of the Maoists.
They joined jungle mahal in 2003 and the Maoist action squad
in 2008," the DGP said.

"We are expecting many more arrests on the basis of the
evidence, including Debolina Chakraborty though she has denied
her involvement in Maoist activities," he said.

He added, "We have to destroy the entire Maoist network
and improve our sourcing. The Maoists are now merging with the
urban population, which is not a good sign."

The police would also strengthen its missing persons
cell at the district level and take steps against trafficking
of women, he said.
