North East exodus: Two pushed out of train, die



Siliguri: Two people were killed in West Bengal after being pushed out of a Guwahati-bound train carrying Assamese fleeing Bangalore, officials said Sunday.

The incident took place Saturday night between Belakoba and Raninagar stations of North East Frontier Railway (NEF). Nine others were injured, four of them seriously.

All the injured have been shifted to the North Bengal Medical College Hospital.

Railway sources said the train was carrying a large number of people from Assam who had left Bangalore following rumours that people from the northeast could be targeted.
