On board India's mosquito-busting train

India has decided to take the fight against deadly fevers to mosquito breeding grounds with a new train.

Large parts of the country are in the grip of viruses, with chikungunya, dengue and malaria all taking their toll.

Shilpa Kannan boarded the Mosquito Terminator Special to see it in action.
