Delay in Informing Police Helped Miscreants Escape?

A question that is doing the rounds is if the delay in passing information on the explosives on the track helped the miscreants escape.
According to the police, explosives were found on the railway track at Malakhed town in the district at about 7 am on Saturday and railway officials were informed within half an hour.
The officials only asked the Malakhed keyman to throw away the explosives and did not inform the police.
The second lot of explosives was found at 10 am on the track at Moghala thanda of Chittapur taluk.
After the scuffle with the miscreants, Tulajaram informed the matter to higher-ups at about 10.20 am.
The railway officials and railway police informed only the divisional office in Secunderabad and not the local police.
Had the Chittapur police been informed on time, they could have done a
Naka Bandi in the entire district and nabbed the accused.
When Express asked ADGP Amarkumar Pandey if this delay has hindered the police from nabbing the miscreants, he said the Railway Department and Railway Police have to answer this question.
Divisional Railway Manager S K Mishra denied any delay in passing on the information to the police.
He further said explosives were found in two locations in the district within a span of three hours and the local railway officials had informed the divisional office at 10.45 am as per protocol.
“I alerted chief security officer Rajkumar Pacharwal and asked him to convey the matter to the
Gulbarga Superintendent of Police and he did so at 11.15 am,” S K Mishra added.
