We started the journey at 10pm and reached Mathura in Uttar Pradesh state past midnight. At around 4am, we realised that the train had reached the central state of Madhya Pradesh, which wasn t on our agreed route, Sagar Shambhushete, who was on the train, told the BBC. 乘坐这列火车的萨迦·苫布雪特向BBC透露:“我们于晚上10点出发,在午夜时分抵达北方的马图拉。凌晨4点左右,我们发现火车已经到达了中央邦的中部,这并不是原定的路线。” Mr Shambhushete said they stopped the train and started protesting at a small station called Banmore in Madhya Pradesh. 苫布雪特称,他们叫停了火车,并在中央邦一个叫班纳尔的小站进行了抗议。 Our lives were at risk. The train was on a wrong route, an accident could have happened. We agreed to get back on the train after the railway authorities promised us that we were safe, he said. 他表示:“我们的生命处于风险之中,火车路线错误,这很可能会发生事故。在铁路部门向我们承诺安全后,我们同意返回列车上。” But railway officials say the farmers safety was never at risk. Special trains are run through a route which is conveniently available to the railway operation. The passengers might have felt confused because of the different route used in their return journey. There was no negligence and diversion, the railways said in a statement. 不过铁路官员称,这些农民们的安全没有任何风险。铁路部门在一则声明中表示:“有一些特殊列车是通过一条更方便的线路运行的。乘客们有时候可能会感到疑惑,因为回程是另一条不同的路线。绝不存在人为疏忽或者把乘客送错地方这样的事。”
