The New Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express, which was seized by armed Maoist-backed tribal activists in West Bengal, arrived in New Delhi Wednesday evening.

The Bhubaneshwar-New Delhi Rajdhani Express arrived at the New Delhi station around 7 pm, nine hours and fifty minutes behind the schedule.

The train was seized by tribals in West Midnapore district on Tuesday but was freed by security forces after a five-hour hostage drama.

The activists, under the aegis of a Lalgarh group People's Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA), also took control of the two drivers in an unprecedented step to demand the release of their jailed leader Chhatradhar Mahato.
