As per the plang, Shailendra and Rajkishore chalked out the blue print of the loot in trains coming from south as many travel toward Uttar Pradesh from South on Vishwakarma Puja. They shared it with Suresh and Waqil Yadav in Hyderabad.  Shailendra, Rajkishore and Waqil reached Bhopal by Chhattisgarh Express on September 7. Suresh came to Bhopal from Hyderabad.  All the four boarded in Sampark Kranti Express in General compartment. They entered in toilet and when train left Bhopal, they came out from toilet and started using abusive words and brandished “Katta” for other passengers just to terrorise them.  After loot, Shailendra, Rajkishore, Waqil managed to jump from train before train reached Vidisha. While passengers caught two accused Suresh and Pramod and beaten them and handed over to GRP, SP GRP Malviya added.
