OSAKA (Kyodo) Hanshin Electric Railway Co. and an investment fund led by Yoshiaki Murakami held a top-level meeting Tuesday, apparently to discuss the fund’s equity stake in the railway, sources said Wednesday.

Murakami and Hanshin Electric Railway President Kyoji Nishikawa met at Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills complex, where the Murakami Fund has its offices, the sources said. Both the fund and the Osaka-based railway declined comment on the reported meeting.
