Muslim family assaulted, robbed in train in UP
Close on the heels of alleged lynching of a Muslim boy in a train in Haryana, yet another Muslim family was assaulted and their women allegedly molested in a train in Uttar Pradesh's Mainpuri district, about 300 kilometres from here.
 
According to the police sources, the incident occurred on Wednesday night, when the passenger train, that runs between Farrukhabad and Shikohabad in the state, left Bhogaon station in Mainpuri.
 
Police said that a group of miscreants, who boarded the train at Bhogaon, allegedly assaulted the Muslim family. They snatched their cell phones and also looted cash and valuables.
 
The women members of the family were allegedly groped and their clothes were torn by the miscreants, the police said.
 
Mohammed Shakir, the head of the 10-member family, who were returning home after attending a wedding, alleged that the miscreants numbered around 30 and they barged into their coach after breaking the window panes.
 
He also alleged that the miscreants spoke about their (family) religion as the women were in veil. The police, however, denied that the family was targeted as they were Muslims.
 
A case was lodged with the GRP at Mainpuri and four youths were detained in this connection. A hunt was on to nab the other culprits.
