Burglary on Delhi-B'lore Rajdhani shocks passengers

The thefts occurred in two 2-tier coaches within eight hours after the fully air-conditioned (AC) super-fast train chugged out of Hazrat Nizamuddin station an hour behind schedule late on Tuesday.

A handbag of a woman passenger in the fifth coach and two mobile phone handsets of a family in the third coach were found missing from their berths in the wee hours though doors remained locked en-route and through movement of others was restricted.
“My wife went to toilet around 6 am and found her leather handbag missing on return to her berth. The bag had Rs 3,100 in cash and some cosmetic items,” said her husband Devi Dutt Sati onboard.

The family members in the other bogie, who boarded the train at Jhansi around 2 am, also found their mobile phone handsets stolen in similar circumstances between Bhopal and Nagpur around sunrise.
The aggrieved passengers filed complaints with the police at the Nagpur station after the theft was brought to the notice of the train ticket examiner (TTE) and the train superintendent.

“I am sorry some passengers lost cash and mobile sets in a running train, which is otherwise secured. The Nagpur police will investigate the theft case,” said the TTE.
