A seven-year-old girl has been admitted at Jaora Government Hospital in Madhya Pradesh in a serious condition after she was thrown out of a running train.

The girl, identified as Lalli, daughter of Kanwarlal from Harkiyakhal village in Mandsaur district, was found near Manankheda crossing—about 70 km west of Ratlam headquarters—and admitted to a hospital in an unconscious state. She is undergoing treatment for serious head and facial injuries. Neemuch GRP have arrested the accused Mohammed Taslim and registered an attempt to murder case against him.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, Jaora sub-divisional officer (police) KK Vyas said the incident occurred around 11 am, when the minor was travelling with her father in Agra-bound Ratlam–Agra Fort passenger train.

SDOP Vyas said Lalli and her father boarded the train from Malharganj railway station. After sometime, Kanwarlal entered into a brawl with the accused Mohammed Taslim, a beggar, over a trivial issue. The matter was settled with the intervention of fellow passengers. Later, Lalli and her father Kanwarlal managed to get seats in different compartments. However, Taslim felt humiliated and decided to take revenge for being 'insulted'.

After some time, he picked up Lalli from her seat and threw her out of the running train.

Kanwarlal came to know about the incident only when some fellow passengers raised an alarm. The girl’s father immediately pulled the chain and informed the train ticket examiner and guard about the incident.

The train guard informed Neemuch government railway police (GRP) about the incident. The local police and the GRP rushed to the spot and found the girl lying near the railway track in an unconscious state near Manankheda crossing.

She was immediately rushed to the Jaora Government Hospital where her condition said to be stable.
