    I booked retiring room at Bhubaneshwar railway station. After checking in I found that the room is infested with bed bugs. Asked the supervisor and he told that allac as well as non AC rooms have bed bugs. I checked with deputy station manager and they told that it,s a known issue and no permanent issue has been found. I tried to cancel the room online for which I am getting zero refund. Now finally waiting in AC waiting hall for my train which is 3 hrs from now. Just wasted my hard earned money on a useless service from railways.

    I am Shaswata Sankar Sadhu, s/o Sri Sakti Sadhu, Resident of 5B Rajendra Nath Roy Chowdhury Lane. Kolkata – 700036.
    I was travelling from Araria to Malda on official trip in Jogobani – Kolkata Express ( train no – 13160) PNR – 6559964570 Coach AB2 Seat No 1 on 9- Mar-17.
    At around 4.40pm, train already crossed purnea station, suddenly I noticed my laptop bag was missing. I searched the entire compartment however same was not found. By then train had reached Katihar Station at around 5pm. I got down in katihar to lodge FIR. Railway police advised me that the FIR application will be send to Purnea as the incident had happened before the train reach to katihar. I have submitted the letter there and received a copy of the same with Katihar Rail police stamp. After 3 to 4 days my application had reached to purnea rail ps as confirmed my Mr Nitin of Katihar PS ( contact no 7282012491)…and I have been following up with Mr Birendra ( contact No 9431822725) to get the FIR number in order to submit the same to my office as per order. However he is saying that why katihar railway police had sent the same to them as incident had happened post the train had left purnea.
    Today again when I have contacted Birendra, he told me that I have to visit purnea Rail PS to get the FIR number. However Mr Nitin of Katihar had confirmed me that FIR number will be provided be purnea Rail PS over the phone.
    Now I am suffering every moment as there is a pressure from my office to submit FIR number and these Rail Police stations are harazzing me instead of cooperation. I am really surprised to notice that they are actually not interested to serve me and avoiding from the situation. I am in deep soup now. Following articles were there in the bag:
    Laptop bag, Laptop ( lenovo), laptop charger, mobile charger( samsung white colour), ubon earphone, sbi passbook, cheque books of Bandhan bank and Hdfc bank, identity card of bandhan bank, bandhan bank duary where all my details were updated in the front page, pendrive of transcend, few official papers and hotel bills, mouse red colour, two wheeler papers etc.

    Request you to kindly help me to get my belongings and please do provide me with FIR number. I am writing this mail with lot of expectations. Please help me please…
    I have attached the application copy
