Condemning the kidnapping of two railway drivers in West Bengal by Maoists on Tuesday, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh has ordered strengthening the security of trains passing through the state, official sources said.

Two drivers of the New Delhi-Bhubaneswar Rajdhani Express were kidnapped, with the People's Committee against Police Atrocities claiming responsibility, at Banstala, 10 km from Jhargram station in West Midnapore district.

"Harassing the drivers along with several other innocent passengers with such activities is condemnable," Singh said.

Taking a serious view of the incident, Singh has asked the railway police to tighten security in the trains passing from the state, the sources added.
