Naxals attack train in Bihar

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 8, 2007

In a daring strike, naxalites of the banned CPI (Maoists) attacked a passenger train in Bihar’s Jamui district on Sunday Two railway protection force (RPF) jawans were killed and three others wounded.

An unspecified number of naxalites stopped Howrah-Gaya passenger train between Narganjo and Ghorpara stations of the Eastern Railway and shot dead two RPF jawans– A Bag and B Ghosh. No passenger was harmed by the naxalites.

Three RPF personnel including a sub-inspector, who were injured in the attack, have been shifted to a government hospital at nearby Jhajha.

The naxalites were also learnt to have looted some firearms and ammunition of the RPF personnel, but no official confirmation was immediately available. The naxalites were heard shouting anti-government slogans.
