Gang attacks, robs family in train

Farrukhabad: Members of a family returning from a wedding ceremony were allegedly assaulted and looted by a gang of robbers in a train near Nibrarori railway station here, police said today.

Four of the accused have been arrested so far based on a video purportedly shot by one of the victims, a police officer said.

The incident took place on the Shikohabad-Kasganj passenger train on Wednesday between Mota and Nibkarori railway stations – some 30 km from here.

“The accused had boarded the train at Bhongaon in Mainpuri and after an argument with the members of the family, they started misbehaving with them and later assaulted them,” Additional SP Tribhuwan Singh said.

The family members were beaten up with iron rods and sticks, the police officer said.

He said 10 members of the family were injured in the attack, seven of whom were hospitalised in serious condition.

The victims allegedly suffered fractures and internal injuries in the head and stomach.

A case has been registered by the GRP and further probe was on based on the video footage.
