Kozhikode | A sixmetre long iron pipe was found on the railway track between Kozhikode and Kallayi stations in the busy Mangalore-Shornur line today. The object, which could have been a serious threat to the trains passing through track, was noticed by the loco pilot of a train that passed through adjoining track. He immediately intimated the railway authorities immediately, sources said. It was a sixmetre long iron pipe with a radius of six inches, they said.
The object was removed just before a longdistance express train was about to pass through the track. A few months back, holes were found drilled on the track in the same area, raising security concerns, the sources said.
