Ranchi Rajdhani does a 535 km detour for one woman passenger

In what is probably the first time in the history of the Indian Railways, a Rajdhani Express travelled 535 km for a single passenger. Yes, you read that right.
Ananya, who boarded the New Delhi-Ranchi Special Rajdhani Express from Mughalsarai, had been stuck at the Daltonganj station due to the rail blockade by some 200-odd Tana Bhagats at Tori junction in Latehar district, demanding changes to the Chhotanagpur Tenancy Act and land rights. Ananya, a resident of HEC Colony in Ranchi, is pursuing her LL.B. from the Banaras Hindu University and was headed home.
