Sonepat: Gangsters allegedly involved in
the loot of passengers travelling in the New Delhi-
Panipat-Meerut train have been arrested, Government Railway
Police said on Monday.

GRP sources said here that the three arrested gangsters
have been identified as Shiv Kumar, Amit and Sonu, all from
Tajpur village of Panipat district.

GRP has also recovered Rs 1,500 cash from Kumar which he
had looted from the passengers.

One of the gangsters had left his mobile phone with its
SIM card and ID intact inside the train while fleeing, which
helped the police to solve the case, GRP sources claimed.

The New Delhi bound train was ferrying 19 labourers of
Bihar, who were returning from Punjab. They were injured
and looted by a group of armed gangsters between Rathdhanna
and Narela railway stations on the night of November 25.
