Soldiers throw six youth out of moving train
Lucknow: Six young men who had, by mistake, occupied a coach reserved for army personnel were thrown off a moving train by soldiers in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Wednesday.
The incident occurred on board the Avadh Assam Express near Moradabad, about 340 km from the state capital, late Tuesday.
While five of the young men sustained minor injuries, one - Imtiaz Ali - suffered severe head injuries.
The youngsters told police that they rushed into the train as it was about to leave and unknowingly boarded a coach meant exclusively for Army soldiers. By the time they realised they were in the wrong coach, the train had pulled out of the station.
The injured youth said the soldiers refused to heed their pleas that they would get off at the next station, and threw them out of the moving train, one by one.
The injured were identified as Imtiaz Ali, Guddu, Rauf, Pankaj, Patvai and Ravi.
No case has yet been registered against the errant soldiers.
A police official said the injured youth did not want to press further action, fearing even more trouble.
