Earlier on July 18, stones were hurled at Vande Bharat (22550) when it was on its way from Lucknow to Gorakhpur. The incident took place around 11 pm at Domingarh station near the Gorakhpur station. The stones damaged the windowpane near seat number 13 and seat number 14 of executive coach E-1 (EC).

On July 11, again stones were hurled near Sohawal station in Ayodhya district. Three people were arrested by the RPF and it was found that they were angry as their goats were run over by the train.

Divisional commercial manager Rekha Sharma said that people would have to understand the worth of public property. “No matter how much security we put in, unless people become aware, there will be no solution to this problem,” she added.
