It was alleged that the man, who has lost one leg, was thrashed for allegedly stealing a mobile phone of a passenger of a Guwahati-bound train. However, both RPF and Government Railway Police (GRP) of Balasore said they had no knowledge of any such incident.
As per some reports, the victim earned his livelihood by sweeping floors in trains between Balasore and Bhadrak railway stations. While other reports suggested that he was pulled out from the Guwahati-Bangalore Express. Railway minister Suresh Prabhu has ordered a probe into this incident, and we hope the men who are guilty of this act will be brought to justice.
