terror claims lives in Chennai ... feeling sad for the young girl victim..

Swathi left with unfinished dreams – brutally cut short for no fault of hers !  Tamilnadu claims to be ‘peace garden’ (amaithi poonga) by Dravidian parties – there is lurking fear that there are terror groups targetting specific groups creating unrest and more importantly attacking the social fabric and security of the society ….all allowed to blossom by the parties for petty gains ~ no, not a petty thing at all – ‘vote politics’ … you will soon hear voices that terror has no religion – people away from mainstream will have to be heard … innocent lives can anyway be lost !

Chennai woke up with a rude shocking news of blasts in Chennai Central on May day.... a young techie’s life was snatched brutally ... the blast came at a time when Central intelligence agencies and the Tamil Nadu police claimed to have busted a major terror network with the arrest of an ISI suspect in Chennai on Tuesday.  37-year-old man of Sri Lankan nationality, Sakir Hussain, allegedly linked to a Pakistani terror outfit, was picked up in a joint operation of Central and state police forces.   TOI further reports that when some Urdu-speaking policemen approached S Aladdin (23), a mechanic in Portonovo in Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu, with a photograph of a bearded man and inquired whether he had seen him, he thought they were making routine inquiries due to the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. The next day he woke up to the news that Ahsraf Ali Khan, a suspected Indian Mujahideen operative, was picked up from the village mosque.

Away there is another sad news of at least 12 people were killed and 30 injured when a passenger train derailed on Konkan Railway route in Maharashtra's Raigad district.  The accident occurred just outside a tunnel near Nidi village, when the engine and four out of 20 bogies of Diwa-Sawantwadi passenger train derailed at around 10 am between Nagothane and Roha railway stations, about 120 kms from Mumbai. Rescue operations were going on, the police said, adding that workers were trying to extricate people trapped under bogies that overturned after derailment. According to Raigad police control room, 12 passengers were killed and 30 injured in the mishap which occurred in a remote area. Following the mishap, services on Konkan Railway route were suspended. Last month too, a goods train derailed on the route, affecting services. The injured passengers are being rushed to Roha for medical treatment, police said. Railways ordered an inquiry and Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge announced an ex-gratia of Rs two lakh for those killed in the accident, Rs 50,000 for the grievously hurt and Rs 10,000 for passengers who suffered minor injuries.

Some more suspects in the twin bomb blasts in the Kaziranga Express have been identified, Tamil Nadu Police said today claiming it has got "positive" clues on the explosions that killed a woman passenger and left 14 others injured. A careful perusal of CCTV footages at the Chennai Central Station, Bangalore City Railway station and those between Bangalore and Chennai has led the CB-CID police, probing the explosion to zero in on some "positive" leads, a senior official involved in the investigation said here. A TOI report states that Police are interrogating a man who was found in one of the compartments of the Bangalore-Guwahati Express. "We are questioning him on why he was hiding in the compartment," an officer said. Meanwhile, a member of a bomb squad that visited the spot told a TOI correspondent that they have recovered a red bag from under a seat that appeared to have carried the explosive. The train had reached the Chennai Central railway station at 7.05am on the platform no. 9 and some passengers got down from the train. Few others going further towards Guwahati stayed back in the train which was to leave the station at 7.50am.

The injured being treated at the Government General Hospital include a child and a woman. Doctors at the hospital said that four people Sareen, Vimal, Hari and Anjaneyalu have suffered skin lacerations and would be made to undergo plastic surgery. The grieving parents from Guntur wept uncontrollably as they collected the mortal remains of their lovely daughter ….. what was achieved by the terrorists would remain always Q but more importantly what the Govt at the Central and State do to take action against such persons not fit to live in a society would be a bigger Q.

Today, Monday started with rains and Chennaites in the little inconvenience of rains and dirt on roads – would slowly forget everything.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
