The station has been temporarily sealed and the senior police officials inspected the surroundings. Divisional Railway Manager Prabhash Kumar speaking to the PTI said, “Two explosions were heard early today. The UP police have taken over and now forensic investigations are being done to determine the cause.”
The police about the Andaman Express, traveling to Chennai, said, “Luckily, the engine driver had seen it in time and applied emergency brakes. A note threatening terrorist attacks was found at the spot.”
The Taj Mahal has been secured off after this, as the 17th century monument poses a threat from ISIS.
