Maoists bandh: 7 trains cancelled in Jharkhand


Ranchi, Jul 7: The South Eastern Railway (SER) cancelled seven trains and routes of five trains diverted in Jharkhand on Wednesday, Jul 7 as Maoists began their two-day strike in seven states.

"Seven trains have been cancelled and the routes of five trains have been diverted in view of the Maoist strike," said a railway official.

The cancelled trains include Palamau Express, Barwadih-Dehri Asansol Express, Tata-Kharagpur Express and Chakradharpur-Gomo Express.

The trains, whose routes had been diverted include Howrah-Jabalpur Shaktipunj Express, Howrah Varanasi Intercity Express and Tata-Jammu Tawi Express.

The bandh called by Maoists is a step to protest the killing of their top leader, Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad, in Andhra Pradesh on Jul 2 in an alleged shootout.

The rebels claimed that police killed Azad in a staged gunfight after arresting him in Nagpur in Maharashtra.
