Spl train to Bihar from Anand Vihar station in Delhi

New Delhi: Facing unprecedented summer rush
in trains bound for Bihar from New Delhi station, Railways
today had to run a special unreserved train from Anand Vihar
terminal to Patna, with passengers far outnumbering the total
seat capacity.

The train left from here at 5.40 pm and 1797 passengers
boarded it against the seat capacity of 1660, said a source in
Railways. It had 18 general second class coaches.

Another special unreserved train will also run tomorrow
from Delhi Sarai Rohilla station to Patna. Railways expect a
matching rush in this train too. Both are following the route
and stoppages of Jansadharan Express.

The source said the purpose to run both the trains from
different stations was to decongest New Delhi station, which
was seeing heavy summer rush and was witness to a stampede
incident on May 16 in which two persons were killed.

Meanwhile, sources indicated that some more trains might
be shifted from New Delhi station to the underutilised Anand
Vihar station, which at present handles seven regular trains
and special trains bound for eastern states.
