Who is behind train sabotages?
Police officers in Nepal have confirmed that businessman Shamshul Hoda, who was arrested in Kathmandu, was involved in an aborted attempt at setting off a train accident in Ghorasahan and a low intensity explosion at Nakardehi, both in Bihar.
Last month, based on information obtained during the interrogation of three persons by the Nepal police, Bihar police arrested Moti Paswan, Uma Shanker Patel and Mukesh Yadav.
The trio claimed that they had planted a powerful bomb, packed in pressure cooker, on the railway track in Ghorasahan in East Champaran district on October 1 on the instructions of the ISI. The IED was defused by the police.
Paswan also allegedly told the police that the ISI was involved in the Kanpur train accident on November 20 and that he and two others had travelled to the accident site to place the IED.
