PIB Press Release
On 1st June, 2009, around 300-400 agitators gathered at Khusropur station between Fatuha-Patna section on Danapur Division of East Central Railway(ECR) and torched an empty AC Chair Car coach attached to Train No. 3226 Dn there after detraining the passengers. The agitators were protesting against the cancellation of stoppage of 2391/2392 Shramjivi Express at Khusropur. The mob later set on fire the empty coaches of 543 passengers running between Rajgir and Danapur in a similar fashion. No casualty or injury was reported in the incident.
In this connection, it is clarified that 33 temporary stoppages were earlier given by the local Zonal Railway administration of East Central Railway (ECR), Hajipur at different stations in response to public request and the stoppage at Khusropur is one of these. On 26th May, 2009 a Notification was issued by ECR to the effect that these stoppage, which were of temporary and experimental nature, were being withdrawn by the Zonal Railway because these stoppages were not found to be commercially justified.
It is clarified that the decision of withdrawal of temporary stoppages was taken by the Zonal Railway without the approval of the Ministry of Railways. No directives for withdrawal of these stoppages were given by the Minister of Railways. In view of the public sentiments, the Minister of Railways has however, directed that these temporary stoppages which were withdrawn by ECR, be restored with immediate effect.
