Another train robbery in Laluland

June 25, 2004 12:48 IST

In the sixth attack on trains passing through Bihar in less than a month, gunmen on Friday stabbed a passenger and looted cash and valuables worth over Rs 1.50 lakh from an AC coach of the Mumbai-Howrah Mail near Bhabhua Road.

Seven gunmen boarded an AC-III tier coach of the train at the Bhabhua Road station on the Mughalsarai-Sasaram section of the East-Central Railway and went on a looting spree, Superintendent of Police, Railways, Vinay Kumar said.

They stabbed a passenger and beat up a few others when their attempts were resisted, Kumar said.

The gunmen later fled after pulling the chain a few kilometres away from the station at around 0500 IST, he said.

Twenty-five passengers lodged a complaint with the Government Railway Police at the Sasaram station.
 
A Border Security Force inspector was shot dead on May 27 when he tried to resist robbers on board Farakka Express at the Raghunathpur station.

Just four days later, passengers lynched a dacoit and beat up four others on the Patna-Palamu Express at Aurangabad.

On June 3, one passenger was shot dead and 10 others were injured by robbers on the Doon Express train in Gaya district.

On June 9, two passengers were shot dead by criminals in an AC Coach of the Howrah-Danapur Express near Patna.

In the fifth incident, robbers raided a bogie of the Gaya-Howrah Express near Sheikhpura station last week and looted cash and valuables worth Rs 3 lakh.
