Low intensity device along with threat letter recovered from Akal Takht Express
Passengers had to be immediately evacuated from two coaches of Akal Takht Express (Train Number-12317, Howrah to Amritsar) after UP Police received information about a suspicious object that was kept inside the washroom of the train.

According to media reports, UP Police recovered the suspicious object on Wednesday night around 1:15 am near Amethi, Uttar Pradesh. After receiving the information, the police and the bomb disposal s">quad rushed to the site and recovered the device which was taken out of the train immediately and then defused.

According to the Government Railway Police, the object was identified as a low intensity device. "A low intensity device was found, it has been deactivated and train has left for its destination," Saumitra Yadav, SP Government Railway Police, was quoted as saying by ANI.

Along with the low intensity device, a threat letter was also recovered at the same spot which warns that revenge will be taken for the killing of Lashkar commander Abu Dujana, who was one of the top most faces of terror in Kashmir and was killed in an encounter by the security forces in Pulwama district on August 1, according to ANI reports.


The hand-written letter stated, "Dujana ki shahadat ka badla ab Hindustan ko chukana padega." (India will have to pay the price for Abu Dujana's martyrdom.)

Meanwhile, the Superintendent of Police told the reporters that probe is still underway to identify the person who had kept the device inside the train.
