You might have heard about incidents of robbery many times but today we are here to tell you about a robbery in which thieves stole the whole railway station. Yes, you heard it right!
The railway station that falls on the Dhanbad-Jhariya-Sindri route (Jharkhand State) was entirely robbed and became invisible in no time. While, some robbed railway tracks and sold them, some others constructed concrete cabins at the station. The railway office has been turned into a poultry farm and they have even started farming on the tracks.
Earlier several trains would run on this route. However, 10 years back, the rail route was shut, after being declared as a fire-prone area. Later, a lot of robbery started on the stations falling on this route. Neither the railway authorities nor other officials bothered about the security.
People took advantage of the lack of security in the station premises and started robbing the station assets. In no time, the stations were completely robbed off.
Things worth crores were robbed very smartly. People even sold off poles, gates, signal lights, including costly equipment and costly parts. An estimated current worth of goods at the station was around 50 crores. Currently, the station has been completely deserted.
