People travelling by the Delhi-Patna Rajdhani Express were robbed early on Sunday near Buxar in Bihar. The dacoits are believed to have beaten up several passengers in the A4, B1 and B2 coaches of the train before fleeing with their valuables. Three people were injured in the incident.
Seven members of the Railway Protection Force were suspended for negligence, ANI reported. The coach attendant present on the train was also detained for allegedly helping the dacoits. At least four people have lodged complaints with the Railway Police claiming their valuables were stolen by dacoits who were let in to the coach, reported News18.
