Woman thrown out of Shatabdi, dies
Kanpur: In a shocking incident, a 35-year-old woman died after being allegedly thrown out of 2003 Delhi-bound Shatabdi Express by the catering and ticket-checking on Sunday. The incident took place near Panki-Bhaupur railway station after an argument as the woman was travelling without ticket. No one in the compartment came to her rescue.
The woman, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, had boarded the train at the Kanpur Central Railway Station. A youth named Raju of Raidalpur, who was a witness to the incident, said that he saw the woman falling from the footboard of the train at the pole no: 1056/4 near Bhaupur railway station around 5:21 pm. She was being assaulted by two-three persons at the gates of the C-I coach of the train, Raju said.
"She was fighting with two-three men near the footboard of the compartment. One of them slapped and pushed her out of the speeding train," he added.
The police reached the spot half-an-hour after the incident and by that time the woman breathed her last. "A bag, a paper on which two mobile phone numbers 9832306740 and 99323913877 were scribbled and Rs 400 were recovered from her possession. However, both the numbers were found to be non-operational when the police tried to seek details about the woman," a police official said. A case is yet to be registered
