Probe begins into Shatabdi stoning

Rohtak Range IGP V Kamaraj said the Government Railway Police, Panipat has registered a case under Section 152 (damaging railway property) of the Indian Railways Act against unidentified persons. Rahul who was travelling on Chair Car (C-3) was safe but a crack had developed in one of the windowpanes of the compartment.

The police are probing all angles and investigating whether the incident in which the Amritsar-Shatabdi Express was targeted near here was deliberate or another stray stone throwing case.

“As the train was moving at a slow speed, the guard of the train reported having seen three to four young men throwing stones at the coaches,” Kamaraj said. “We have identified the place where the incident happened.”

He said the guard had also shouted at the young men asking them not to throw stones. “The guard could not clearly see the faces of the miscreants in the darkness,” the IGP said.
