In a bizarre incident, a gang of robbers managed to stop a train on the outer area of the Siripuram railway station in Guntur district and looted few passengers. They managed to take away 76 gm of gold from two passengers and fled the place as the other passengers raised an alarm. The robbers attempted to loot S5 and S6 compartments of the Narsapur Express.
What is shocking is that the driver stopped the train in the outer section despite the claims of the signal authorities that a green signal was given to enter the railway station. The driver claimed that there was no signal. It is suspected that some miscreants may have cut the signal cables so that despite the signal authorities giving signals, there was red signal in the outer.
Train robberies in the Guntur-Nadikudi streatch have become very common. The authorities are investigating.
