The Railway Police on Monday made a significant breakthrough in cases of passengers being looted of their belongings while on board running trains by arresting a person from Bihar. Following frequent incidents of thefts from stacked luggage on the upper racks of the coaches of Coimbatore – Nagercoil passenger train reported in the months of June and November 2008, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Railway Police, S.N. Seshasayee, and the Superintendent of Police, N. Manoharan, formed special police teams under the supervision of Deputy Superintendent of Police, Railway Police, K. Periasamy. The teams led by Inspectors S. Balraj (Podanur) and K. Elangovan (Jolarpet) fanned out in different directions in search of the accused. A constant vigil was maintained on trains especially from Coimbatore towards Chennai, Bangalore, Nagercoil and Tiruchirapalli via Erode.

The special teams stumbled on Rajeshkumar alias Rajesh Prasad alias Munna (35) of Patna in Bihar. It is learnt that the gangsters from Bihar used to board crowded trains and sit on the upper rack. Under the pretext of reading newspapers, the gang used to deceive the passengers and silently open suitcases and locked baggage using duplicate keys and decamp with valuables.
The gangsters never interacted with fellow gang members.
