Hours after twin bomb blasts in Mumbai killed 46 people, more than 100 detonators were found from a railway track at a place about 60 km from Nashik just an hour before an express train carrying mostly Kumbh pilgrims was to pass, senior police and railway officials in Nashik said.
Trains running on the route, including Delhi-Kochi Mangla Express and Panchavati Express, were halted on the tracks following the detection of the explosives, Jain said.
Meanwhile, Central Railway has given the clearance for trains to resume onward journey and was awaiting clearance from the Railway Police, which patrols the tracks.
