The railways have asked police in Orissa, West Bengal and Jharkhand to look into the possibility of re-introducing trains at the top speed of 110 km/hr during night hours in Maoist-affected areas. The trains are currently running at 75 km/hr as Railways officials decided to run them at a slower speed in view of the frequent Maoist-called bandhs and threats in their strongholds in these three neighbouring eastern states. At a meeting with police officials, South Eastern Railway General Manager A K Verma said that though it was a year since night trains were resumed in Junglemahal and other extremist- hit areas, the maximum permissible speed of trains was 75 km/hr. Due to this, in December alone 212 trains lost punctuality, he said.
