Over a fortnight after an alleged argument over a seat in a Mathura-bound local train claimed the life of Junaid Khan, members of a family were beaten up in the same train on Friday.
Railway police said that they had received a complaint from a Delhi family in this regard. In their complaint, they told the police that they were returning from Govardhan and boarded the train at Mathura to reach Ghaziabad.
The family said some passengers boarded the train at Chhatta station. They claimed there was a commotion as there was rush in the train.
“Some passengers, including women and children who boarded at Chhatta station, were beaten up due to a dispute over a seat, leading to injuries to a woman passenger,” a railway official said.
Police said the victims de-boarded at Old Faridabad railway station and lodged a zero FIR at the GRP Police station. Santosh Dubey of Nangloi, Delhi, suffered injuries and was taken to BK Hospital for treatment, police said.
The railway police in Mathura will investigate the matter.
Meanwhile, villages in Khambi — from where four people were arrested in connection with the murder of Junaid — threatened to launch an agitation at Jantar Mantar. Some villagers said a decision will be announced on Sunday.
Junaid, 16, was stabbed and killed on a train while he was on his way home in Ballabhgarh after shopping for Eid on June 22.
“We have called meeting of the committee members on Sunday to decide next course of action,” said Nityanand Sharma who was chosen as head of the 60-member committee at a Mahapanchayat last Sunday. The Mahapanchayat was held to discuss the issue of arrest of five youth from Palwal district, specially from Khambi village.
Police had announced a reward of ₹2 lakh on Monday for information leading to identification of the accused who stabbed Junaid to death. Among the four men arrested, three are in their 20s and work in private sector while one is in his 50s and works with the Delhi Jal Board. They are all residents of Khambi.
