The passenger train was stopped and stoned by angry
villagers protesting against the railway police last evening.
According to railway sources, a senior citizen, Ashok, of
Dhedha village was run over by another train near Muradnagar.

for several hours.
The protesters were removed from the track by the local
police and after an hour the train passed the area.

Body of deceased has been sent for postmortem.
