Ghaziabad: Over 20 passengers of Delhi-Hapur daily shuttle train were injured when unidentified persons hurled stones at them near Dasna railway station here, officials said on Tuesday.

Some persons rushed in and resorted to indiscriminate stone-pelting at passengers shortly after the train crossed Ghaziabad railway station, bringing it to a halt near Dasna last evening, Government Railway Police (GRP) said.

The incident took place after a passenger was allegedly beaten up in the train before it left Delhi, who later called on his friends to take revenge, they said.

Passengers had to save themselves from getting hit by hiding under their seats. The train could resume service after police took charge of the situation after half-an-hour, sources said.

No arrests have been made in this connection so far.
