Ironically, those present at the railway station stayed there as mute spectators during the incident, which was recorded on camera.

No one came forward to help the GRP personnel, who was badly injured.

 

However, other GRP personnel arrived at the spot soon and brought the situation under control.

According to GRP Inspector Ravinder Bahadur Singh, two youths have been arrested and a case has been registered in this regard.

The incident came to light a week after a TV journalist covering the derailment of a goods train near Shamli city of Uttar Pradesh was ferociously thrashed and locked up by the Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel.

This incident was also caught on camera and was widely shared on social media. 

The journalist alleged that he was stripped, harassed and humiliated by GRP officials inside the jail premises.

Later, the Superintendent of Police (SP) (GRP), Moradabad, Subhash Chandra Dubey suspended two GRP personnel in this connection.
