Hyderabad, Aug 1 (UNI) The sudden inferno and the recovery of ten charred bodies from a single coach of Gouthami Express has puzzled the authorities probing the mishap.

Railway Protection Force(RPF) authorities said the way the incident occurred had created many doubts. It was impossible for such an incident to occur in such a short time. Such a mishap was unlikely even if it was due to a technical snag, they added.

When contacted, Warangal District SP V C Sajjanar said he did not rule out the involvement of anti-social elements. However, they would come to a conclusion only after investigations were completed, he said.

Special teams were probing the case from various angles, he added.

Meanwhile, South Central Railway has cancelled several trains while the trains proceeding towards Vijayawada were running late by more than four hours.
