3 more bodies found: Toll on board 5

Three more bodies were recovered on Monday taking the toll in violence on board the Guwahati-bound train to five. Two bodies were recovered from a place between Belakoba and Raninagar stations. Two more bodies were found later at a place near Halakata, close to New Jalpaiguri station. The body of a man was found on Monday close to the tracks near Manguraj railway station on West Bengal border under the Northeast Frontier Railway.
NF Railway authorities have yet to ascertain the reason. Besides, it was not clear if the five were among those fleeing Bangalore fearing backlash after the Assam violence as the police and railway authorities remained tight-lipped pending an investigation.

The body of the 35 year-old man was found in the morning. It is feared that he was thrown out by anti-socials from Bangalore-Guwahati special train on Sunday night. An identity card was found in his pocket, besides a ticket for general class from Vishakhapatnam to Guwahati.
