ULAN-UDE, April 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Three passenger trains were delayed on the southern branch of the Trans-Siberian Railway in the Baikal Territory over a false bomb threat of the railway track at the station Mogoituy, the press service of the Trans-Siberian Railway told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. The incident occurred in the evening on April 16. “A local woman reported at 15:12 Moscow time to the alert force of the police station at the Mogoituy railway station (Karymskaya-Zabaikalsk line) about the railway track mined by her sister,” the press service said.
The police fenced off the suspected mined area over a threat for the safe train traffic and the life of passengers. The emergency situation headquarters was formed of officers of the Federal Security Service department, the Interior Ministry, the prosecutor’s office and the regional security centre on the Trans-Baikal Railway. The team of military sappers rushed to the railway station Mogoituy. In the search at the railway track no explosives were found. The check ended at 21:15 Moscow time on Monday.
Three passenger trains en route from Beijing to Moscow, from Urulyunguy to Krasnokamensk and from Chita to Zabaikalsk were stopped on the Trans-Baikal Railway over the incident. The aggregate time of delay reached 12 hours. “The train traffic on the Karymskaya-Zabaikalsk railway line is running as scheduled,” the press service reported.
The police detained two drunken unemployed women aged 46 and 43 years at the settlement Mogoituy on suspicions of the false bomb threat. The false bomb threat call is being investigated.
