Were railway accidents ISI's revenge for surgical strikes?

For the past three days, intelligence agencies and Delhi police's Special Cell are trying to find a Delhi link to the Kanpur railway accident that killed 150 people in November 2016.Two handlers of the accused men have also been identified as Shamshul Hoda, who is based in Dubai and Brij Kishore Giri, a Nepal gangsterHoda deals in fake currency and visas and has links with fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim's D-company and ISIThe three men - Zia-ul-Haq, Shoaib and Zubair - are being grilled in Delhi for the train accident that was supposedly orchestrated by ISI, sources told TOI. Haq is Hoda's nephew and works as a visa agent. The detained trio lives in the Jama Masjid area and work with travel agencies. Police suspect that two of the men were involved in a conspiracy to blow up the tracks. They may be arrested on Thursday. The agencies had acted on the interrogation report of three criminals - Umashankar Patel, Motilal Paswan and Mukesh Yadav - who were arrested in Motihari, Bihar, on charges of killing a man, Deepak and his uncle, Anil Ram.

Deepak and Ram had placed a cooker bomb on the tracks in Ghorasahan, Bihar, but the operation failed as the bomb was detected and defused. This led to their handlers suspecting the duo had betrayed them. The trio arrested by Motihari police had been sent by Giri to kill Deepak and Ram. Paswan was the one who had made the claim of being involved in the Kanpur railway accident. He said they were in touch with Hoda and Giri for funds and infrastructure to carry out the attack. Security agencies are investigating the claims of the three Bihar criminals arrested in connection with two train accidents last year that the same were engineered by Pakistan's spy agency ISI to avenge the Indian Army's surgical strikes in Pak Occupied Kashmir on September 29. Over 150 passengers were killed after Indore-Patna Express and Sealdah-Ajmer Express trains had derailed near Kanpur.
