Suspected naxalites of banned CPI (Maoist) drove away the Station Master of Nadaul railway station and some other staff in Jehanabad, disrupting movement of trains on Patna-Gaya section of the East Central Railway on Sunday night.

Station master of Nadaul Rajesh Kumar and some other railways staff were chased out of the station premises by armed extremists around 10.30 pm, Chief Public Relations Officer of ECR AK Chandra said.
 
He, however, denied reports that the station master had been kidnapped and said Rajesh Kumar had contacted his superiors over phone from somewhere and informed them about the incident.

"The man has not been kidnapped and is safe," he said.

"Services on the Patna-Gaya section has been suspended and the state government is being informed," he said.
