Fire breaks out in two coaches of Saharanpur-Delhi train

On Saturday morning, a fire broke out in two Saharanpur-Delhi passenger coaches at Daurala railway station in Meerut at around 7:10 am. Two coaches of the train were completely burnt to ashes. Indian Railways have confirmed that during the incident no injuries and causality have been reported. However, the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

During the fire in the train, an unusual sight was seen. When the scope of the fire in the train spread, passengers started pushing the train in a bid to separate the rest of the compartments from the engine and two compartments on which the fire broke out. Two coaches were completely burnt but the fire was prevented from spreading.

According to the reports, the local police and the railway officials reached the spot as soon as they received the information. The incident occurred on train number 04460 which was going from Saharanpur to Delhi.

When passengers in compartments near the engine noticed smoke and sparks coming from beneath their feet, they were terrified. The passengers began shouting. Following that, people started taking off passengers who were seating in close proximity of the fire.

The people present there warned the driver. As soon as the information about the fire in the train was received, the passengers in the rear compartments were shocked.

Passengers hurriedly exited and began running across the platform, creating ruckus to alert other passengers. Firefighters then arrived on the scene and attempted to extinguish the flames. The train’s coaches were detached from the engines with the help of passengers during this time.

In the last two weeks, there has been a second massive fire in a halted train. Earlier, it happened at Madhubani railway station in Bihar. The fire occurred on the Delhi-bound Freedom Fighter Express.

Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Dependra Pathak, while hailing the “robust” security checks and terror measures, assured that the police will not allow any terror plot to succeed on their watch.

He said that several measures aimed at creating awareness among the public, such as organizing public meeting and alerting market and resident welfare associations are being run to ensure mischievous elements with nefarious designs are unable to creep in.

Officials said that anti-terror measures have been intensified in coordination with other security agencies since Delhi has always been a target for terrorists or anti-social elements.

An alleged video of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal’s late night sexual harassment by an intoxicated driver on the city streets has surfaced online.

The alleged video, which has gone viral on social media, shows Maliwal’s run-in with her purported attacker.

“Sorry. I can’t hear you. Where will you drop me? I have to go home to meet my relatives,” Maliwal is heard saying to the accused Harish Chandra, who was driving a white Maruti Suzuki Baleno car.

Maliwal then steps away and it seems like the man drove-off but apparently makes a U-turn and once again presses Maliwal to get in.

“I just told you that I won’t get in with you. Why are you asking again? Where will you drop me? I told you my relatives are coming,” 38-year-old Maliwal tells her attacker. As she seems to lean in to reprimand him, the attacker seemingly pulls up the window glass, Maliwal’s hand gets stuck but the accused drives off, dragging her along.

The authenticity of the video could not be verified.

Maliwal, had on Thursday, claimed that she was dragged by a car for 10-15 metres in the national capital during the intervening night of Wednesday-Thursday.

The incident, according to the DCW chief, took place at around 3:11 am opposite to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Gate-2 on Thursday. Police reports say that Maliwal’s hand had got stuck in the car’s window.
