Miscreants loot Mumbai-Howrah Express at gun point

January 21, 2008 13:01 IST

A group of armed miscreants on Monday looted property worth Rs one lakh from passengers of the 2358 down Mumbai-Howrah Express, on the Kiul-Jhajha section, under Danapur division of the East Central Railway.

Railway police sources said that ten armed miscreants boarded the S-1 and S-2 coaches of the train at Kiul station and looted the passengers at gun point.

The miscreants also injured some passengers and misbehaved with the women in the train.

However, the passengers managed to nab four of the miscreants while they were trying to escape, by pulling the chain of the train at Bhalui Halt on the route.

An FIR had been lodged at the concerned railway police station and raids were on to nab the rest of the culprits, the sources added.
