New Delhi: Buckling to the pressure of North
Central Railway officers association, Railways has revoked the
suspension order of Allahabad Divisional Railway Manager (DRM)
S K Aggarwal.
Aggarwal was suspended following the train mishap
involving Kalindi Express and Shram-Shakti Express near Tundla
in Uttar Pradesh on January 16.
The officers association on January 18 had threatened to
go on en mass leave demanding revoking of suspension of the
DRM, a move which could have hampered train operations.
Though his suspension was revoked, Aggarwal has been
transferred to a railway modernisation workshop in Patiala. He
is being replaced by B K Aggarwal, who is currently working as
the Group General Manager (services) IRCTC, a railway PSU, a
railway source said.
Beside Aggarwal, the DME of Delhi Division Vinit Singh,
and two drivers of Kalindi Express Ram Prakash and Satpal
Singh Yadav were suspended on January 16.
However, the suspension order of these three are yet to
be revoked, the source added.
Kalindi Express rammed into Shram-Shakti Express near
Tundla, killing three persons and injuring 17 on January 16.
