OHE van derails near Dantewada, Naxal hand suspected
An Over Head Equipment (OHE) van has derailed near Bhansi in Chhatisgarh's Dantewada region. The Naxals are suspected to be behind the incident which took place on Monday.
No one was injured in the incident.
Some parts of the railway track were found to be uprooted between Kamaloor and Kuper which has led the police to a suspicion that this could be the handiwork of the Naxals. Dantewada is also a Naxal infested region.
Reports say that walky-talkies and mobile phones of the railway officials were also snatched by Naxals.
On Sunday, four wagons of a goods train derailed near Hardattpur railway station in Uttar Pradesh. No one was injured in the incident.
