Mar 29, 2016- In a shocking case of extreme violence over a trivial issue, a man was tied to a train’s window and beaten up by three men after he drank water from their bottle.
The incident occurred when a youth named Sumit boarded Patna-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Superfast Express at Jabalpur at around 11 pm. Soon after the train began its onward journey, he reportedly drank two gulps of water from the bottle of the three accused youths.
His act infuriated them so much that they assaulted him. Not satisfied, they pulled the emergency stop chain to stop the train and dragged Sumit out and tied him to a window.
Unaware of the incident, the train driver released the brakes and started the train again – with Sumit hanging outside the coach.
The train ran non-stop for four hours before it halted at Itarsi to the horror of those present on the platform. The accused men also jumped out of the train and started to hit Sumit with their belts. Fortunately, the assembled crowd intervened and saved Sumit.
The accused men are natives of Patna and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) has filed an FIR against them and probing the case.
