Seven passengers of New Delhi-Puri Neelanchal Express were found unconscious when the train arrived at Tatanagar station under Chakradharpur division of South Eastern Railway on Monday, GRP sources said.
Three of the passengers were later admitted to government-run M G M Hospital as they did not regain consciousness, while the rest were still feeling drowsy, the sources said.
The seven passengers were found unconscious at Tatanagar station under Chakradharpur division of Jharkhand and were reported to have boarded the train from Delhi.
The four, who were yet to recover fully, told GRP that they were offered 'rabri' (a delicacy) by some unidentified men who befriended them but they fell unconscious soon after consuming the sweet.
Strangely, no belongings of the passengers were found to be stolen and the articles were now in GRP custody, the sources said.
