Hyderabad, May 22 (UNI) An activist of the Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti (MRPS) has been arrested for burning the push-pull train at Kazipet, recently.

The push-pull train, a shuttle between Warangal and Secunderabad, was generally serviced during nights at the Kazipet loco-shed. As the workers were servicing the front carriages, the MRPS workers doused the rear three coaches with petrol and set it afire. By the time the fire tenders arrived at the spot, the entire train, containing six bogies, was totally burnt.

Police said they had picked up MRPS State Youth Wing President Sarampalli Kommulu, who had led the agitators.
