Hockey player Sandeep Singh shot at inside train

August 22, 2006 11:29 IST

Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh was on Tuesday injured after being shot accidentally by a Railway Protection Force jawan near Kurukshetra inside the Delhi-Kalka Shatabdi Express.

Singh, who was on his way to Delhi, received injuries in his foot and was admitted to a nearby hospital from where he was later shifted to PGI in Chandigarh, Indian Hockey Federation vice-president Chandrashekhar said.

Singh, who was travelling with another hockey player Rajpal Singh, was injured when the RPF jawan's gun went off accidentally, Chandrashekhar said.

The condition of the national-level player is stable, he added.

The train has been halted at Kurukshetra to record the statement of eye-witnesses, sources said.

The Indian team is slated to leave for Germany on August 24, where the World Cup will be played from September 6 to 17.
