Several passengers on board the Delhi-bound GT Express were robbed Saturday when armed robbers stormed into the train near Agra, police said here.

The incident took place between Agra and Mathura on the Grand Trunk (GT) Express coming from Chennai.

The robbers entered a three-tier air conditioned bogie and robbed the passengers on gun point. They also beat up passengers when some of them tried to resist them. They later decamped with the loot before the train halted at the Mathura railway station, a police officer said.

Passengers lodged a first information report (FIR) with the Government Railway Police (GRP) at Mathura and also created a ruckus at the station.

A police officer told IANS that eye witnesses put the number of dacoits at seven. A total of 13 passengers lodged FIRs of being robbed.
