The Great Track Robbery

Alleged criminal mastermind Shamim Kabadi has baffled the police by stealing more than 1.6 km of rail, weighing over 100 tonnes in total, and apparently fleeing to Pakistan. The rail had been laid alongside the main tracks between Katni and Damoh stations in Madhya Pradesh, and investigators are puzzled by how such large-scale robbery was pulled off—ordinary thieves would have had neither the tools nor the funds. They also wonder why anyone would do such a thing; track-grade steel can’t be used for much else, and melting and recasting it for other purposes would be more expensive. The Railway Protection Force have arrested eight people, but their confusion remains. Nevertheless, an RPF officer was reported as saying that they had already recovered 60 per cent of the rail.
