Another fatal fall from moving train

Posted on: October 20, 2015

Two Madhya Pradesh officials have died under mysterious and somewhat similar circumstances, one in Uttar Pradesh and the other in Odisha. Both were said to have fallen from moving trains.

The body of retired Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Vijay Bahadur Singh was found on the railway track near Jharsuguda in Odisha on October 15. Singh was returning to Bhopal from Puri by the Puri-Jodhpur Express with his wife Nita Singh after attending a reunion of 1978 batch IFS officers. The police believed Singh had fallen from the moving train.

What makes the accident suspicious is that Singh was an observer for two recruitment tests in the Vyapam scam, the country’s biggest recruitment scam now being investigated by the CBI under supervision of the Supreme Court.

In 2009, the body of Madan Gopal Rusiya was found on the railway track near Agra in Uttar Pradesh. He was returning from Delhi to Bhopal by Hazrat Nizamuddin-Habibganj Express. Considered a wizard in revenue matters, Rusiya was CEO of Bhopal Development Authority (BDA) which had prepared a plan for development of new colonies near Bhopal and those whose land was going to be acquired included Jitendra Daga, a supporter of Sushma Swaraj and then BJP MLA from Huzur, one of the Bhopal constituencies. Daga had reportedly found the BDA terms for acquiring his land not to his liking and had been trying to get the terms altered. Rusiya was the biggest stumbling block.

Then Daga wanted Rusiya to talk to his lawyer in Delhi which the latter appeared to have flatly declined. Rusiya was said to have been prevailed upon by BDA chairman Surendra Nath Singh and virtually ordered to accompany Daga to Delhi.

The two flew to Delhi on September 10 morning and were scheduled to fly back the same evening. However, Daga was said to have told Rusiya in Delhi that the evening flight had been cancelled; the two, accordingly, boarded the AC coach of the Hazrat Nizamuddin-Habibganj Express the same night. Rusiya’s family members, who had gone to the Habibganj station to receive him, were shocked to see Rusiya’s bag and shoes without Rusiya. Daga had got down at Bhopal main station.

Rusiya’s death was investigated by the CBI which, as usual in sensitive cases, failed to unravel the mystery. Vijay Bahadur Singh’s death is being investigated.

Outright Perilous!

An egoist as the head of the government is bad enough. An egotist is a nuisance as his constant chant of I…, I…., I….. jars on the listeners’ years. But when he loses touch with the reality and starts believing his imaginary achievements to be his real achievements, that’s outright perilous.
