The Bihar Anti-Terrorism Squad reached the state on Wednesday to carry out a probe. The Bihar police had arrested three small-time criminals in the matter. One of the criminals helped them hatch a conspiracy on Wednesday that the instruction of a series of train accidents were given to them by a Nepalese contact. There in Nepal also three members were subsequently arrested, according to reports. The Nepalese contact had reported told police that he received instruction from a contact in Pakistan. One other such train accident was being planned according to the criminal. When Bihar police found high intensity explosives near Ghorasahan, on Tuesday they suggested links of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI could have been behind the Indore-Patna derailment accident. But Rijiju said, “Would be able to comment once the probe is completed.”
