DEORIA: A Government Railway Police personnel was allegedly thrashed by two youths in the Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh, said reports on Wednesday.
According to the information, GRP head constable, whose name has not been disclosed, was on duty near the ticket booking hall at Deoria railway station during which he noticed two-three people trying to break the queue and disturbing others waiting for their turn to buy tickets.
When he tried to object and asked them to maintain decorum, the three youths started threatening him and hurled abuses at him.
The situation soon spiralled out of control and the three men started thrashing the GRP head constable.
