Train derailment due to suspected Naxal blast

In India, Terrorism on May 28, 2010 at 2:05 am

It really saddened my heart when I woke up to the news of 15 dead and more than 50 injured due to derailment of  13 bogies of Gyaneshwari Express near West Midnapore in West Bengal. Railway is suspecting Maoist naxals behind the blast.

My heartfelt deep condolences to the bereaved families and early recovery wishes to the injured.

Nation needs to search answers as to why & till when innocent lives will continue to be lost due to such mindless brutal acts of violence? Are the citizens of a peaceful democratic nation entitled to the fundamental right of safety & security? If yes, then who is responsible to ensure? It is time to fix responsibilities of those who time and again fail in their constitutional obligations towards citizens of this nation. I  am sure you agree with me.

P. S.  Death toll has gone up to more than 100 and number of injured has risen to more than 200.
