Train movement was, on late Wednesday, suspended over a part of the South Eastern Railway in West Bengal following intelligence inputs that Maoists had assembled near the tracks in West Midnapore district for another sabotage attempt, officials said.

Two express trains, including the Mumbai-Howrah Duranta Express, were brought back to Tatanagar station, Divisional Railway Manager (Kharagpur) Anil Handa told IANS.

On May 28, the Mumbai-bound Jnaneshwari Express ran off the tracks because of Maoist sabotage and a speeding freight train rammed into five derailed coaches. In all, 148 passengers were killed and scores were injured.
