NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A fire on a cross-border train between India and Pakistan that is feared to have killed 60 people was suspected to be an act of sabotage, a senior Indian railway official said on Monday.
The coaches of the Samjhauta Express train -- which connects New Delhi to the northern Pakistani city of Lahore -- caught fire near Panipat town, about 80 km north of the Indian capital, around midnight on Sunday (1830 GMT).
"It appears to be a case of sabotage. We have found two suitcases, there were IEDs in them," B.N. Mathur, a top railway official, told reporters referring to improvised explosive devices.
