Maoists Attacks Again ; 65 Civilians Killed, 200 injured

Jhargram: Sixty-five passengers of a Maharashtra-bound express train were killed and 200 injured in a Maoist attack which led to derailment of 13 coaches that were hit by a goods train coming from the opposite direction.

The bodies of the passengers were removed from the mangled remains of the ill-fated coaches of the Howrah-Kurla Lokmanya Tilak Gyaneshwari Super Deluxe Express and the injured taken out with the help of gas cutters, a South Eastern Railway spokesman said.

“65 bodies have been recovered. The toll could go up,” West Bengal Home Secretary Samar Ghosh said.

The incident occurred at 1:30 am when the train was running between Khemasoli and Sardiya stations, about 135 km from Jhargram, South Eastern Railway officials said.
