Suspected Maoists blew up a railway track near Midnapore town in West Bengal's West Midnapore District on Tuesday, disrupting rail services in the region. The incident took place on the second-day of the two-day shutdown call given by the rebels in the three states of West Bengal, Orissa and Jharkhand demanding release of six Maoists, who were arrested earlier. Train services in the Kharagpur division have been affected by the incident. Due to the impact of the blast, rail slippers were blown off and a huge crater was created below the tracks at Puturia between Midnapore and Bhadutala stations.
