Patna: Train movement in Bihar's Naxal-hit Jamui district came to a standstill for several hours after Naxalites threatened to blow up Chaura station. The station fled the master station after the Danapur railway division threatened to blow up Chaura railway station, bringing rail operations to a standstill. From the railways to the police department, there was a stir after the Maoists threatened them.
The Superintendent of Police (SP) rushed to the spot with full force and took stock of the entire matter. The operation of the trains could be restored several hours later. An army uniform reportedly reached Chaura station around 3.45 am on Saturday. The armed youth reached Chaura station on the Patna-Howrah rail route and told the station master that the station would be blown up. The young man left after telling the station master so much.
Stationmaster Vinay Kumar left the station and fled after the threat, bringing train traffic to a standstill. The Himgiri Express train stopped operations and remained stationary at Jamui station for hours. The man is said to have done this to get publicity. Chaura station is 10 km from Jamui. It falls before Jhajha station. Chaura station is in Naxal affected area.
