The administration is in the forefront of the disappearance of 167 passengers of the Shramik Special train from Surat in Gujarat to Haridwar in Uttarakhand. District Magistrate of Haridwar C Ravi Shankar has ordered an inquiry into the case and has identified the missing people and ordered to register a case against them.
The District Magistrate said that according to the list of passengers provided by the Surat administration, on May 12, 1340 passengers were boarding the Shramik Special train from Surat to Haridwar.
