Hoshiyar Singh, a national-level fencing champion dies after he was thrown off a train allegedly by the Railway Police for refusing to pay a bribe of Rs. 200. The incident happened on Tuesday evening. Singh died on the spot.
The 23-year-old player was travelling with his ailing wife, Jyoti, from Kasganj to Mathura in western Uttar Pradesh, some 200 km from the national capital. Singh was travelling in a general coach while his mother, Ms. Jyoti and the couple’s 10-month-old baby, were travelling in ladies coach.
According to Ms. Jyoti, she was not keeping well and that is why she made a phone call to Singh asking him to come to the ladies coach to meet her.
When Singh entered the ladies coach

the personnel of the Government Railway Police objected his entry and asked him to pay a bribe of Rs. 200. An altercation ensued after Singh refused to pay. Ms. Jyoti alleged that the GRP personnel pushed him off the running train after he refused to pay Rs. 200.
“I pleaded with the police that let me talk to my husband and do not fight with him. But they were just not listening to me. It was just Rs. 200 for which they killed him,” she told the media on Friday.
Railway Minister for State Manoj Sinha has ordered a probe into the incident.
“As per my preliminary enquiry Singh was travelling from Kasganj to Mathura and he entered ladies coach. We have ordered an investigation in the entire episode. We will take action against the people who are responsible for his death,” Mr. Sinha said.
The GRP has filed an FIR against three individuals including two GRP personnel. Ms. Jyoti, however, alleged that the charges have been made under “very weak” sections which will lead to their easy acquittal.
Hoshiyar Singh had won the bronze medal in an under-17 championship in 2005 in Kerela.
Based on complain filed by Singh’s family, the GRP has registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder against two Constables and a gurad of the Mathura-Kasganj passenger train.
Police refutes charge
The Superintendent of Police G.N. Khanna, however, rejected the allegation of Singh’s family that he was thrown off the running train.
“According to our investigation, he died when he slipped while trying to catch the train after filling up his water bottle. The train started before he could board it. He ran in an attempt to catch the train but he couldn’t get hold of the door handle and slipped through the gaps between platform and the tracks,” he said.
“When the two constables saw him falling through the gap, they pulled the chain to stop it. They, with the help other railway staff, pulled out Singh’s mutilated body. But due to some misunderstanding apparently, people and his family started shouting that the constables ha pushed him off the train,” he added.
In 2011, national level Volleyball player Arunima Singh was allegedly thrown off a moving train in which she lost her right leg.

Railways on Friday ordered an inquiry into the death of a national-level fencing champion who was allegedly pushed off a moving train by railway police personnel in UP's Hathras district.
"Asking UP govt to take strictest possible action against the police. We Cant tolerate crime by uniformed police, supposed to be Protector (sic)," Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu tweeted.
"Ordered immediate action on police for this heinous crime. Condolence to bereaved family. Such acts can't be tolerated," he said. The alleged incident took place when 27-year-old Hoshiyar Singh was travelling with his mother, wife and their 10-month -old child in Kasganj-Mathura passenger train yesterday.

had boarded the passenger train around noon.
He had boarded the general coach after seating his mother and wife in the women's coach. Though there was no official word as to how he died, his family members alleged that when Singh went to the women's coach to meet his ailing wife, Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel stopped him and asked for Rs 200.
When he refused to pay, he was thrown off the train by police personnel, they alleged. Since GRP is under the state government, railways has been seeking more policing power for RPF and seeking states' cooperation in this regard.
"Constitutional provision law and order state subject. For better safety and security have requested states to give policing powers to Rail (sic)," Prabhu said on the social networking site.
SP (Railway), Agra, Gopesh Khanna told PTI that on the demand of his family members, an FIR was lodged against two Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel - Ram Bilas and Rajesh Kumar - who were accused of "pushing" him out of the running train.

Fencing champion Hoshiyar Singh allegedly thrown out of train, dies HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times, Lucknow| Updated: Jul 24, 2015 12:22 IST
  A physically-challenged fencer died after he was allegedly pushed off a moving train by railway policemen at a station in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday night, a charge the authorities denied.
The family of Hoshiyar Singh, who was in his early 30s, said he had gone to the compartment reserved for women to meet his ailing wife but got into a confrontation when two Government Railway Police (GRP) constables asked him to pay a fine of R200 for entering the reserved coach.
“He begged them to be with me for some time as I was unwell. But they kept demanding money. When

my husband refused, they assaulted him and threw him out of the train,” wife Jyoti alleged.
Singh, who won a fencing bronze medal in the 2005 under-17 national championships in Kerala, was returning with his wife, mother and child from Mathura to their hometown, Kasganj.
The GRP has registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder against two constables, a guard of the Mathura-Kasganj passenger train and a few officials of Sikandra Rao station where the incident happened.
Superintendent of police (railways) GN Khanna dismissed the allegations, though the case was based on the family’s complaint.
“Our investigation tells a different story. Singh got down at the station to refill his bottle at one of the station water taps. But before he could board the train, it started pulling out around 7.30pm. He ran but couldn’t catch the door handle and slipped through the gap between the platform and the tracks. He was physically challenged in one hand,” he said. When two GRP constables on three coaches ahead of Singh’s saw the man fall through the gap, they pulled the chain and stopped the train, the officer said.
“They along with station staff pulled out the mutilated body of Singh. In the meantime, as soon as the train stopped, his family members and some other people had begun shouting that the constables had thrown the man out.”
Singh’s death adds to a growing list of sportspersons losing life and limbs because of crimes on trains, which speaks volumes about the railways’ poor passenger safety record.
In 2011, national-level volleyball player Arunima Sinha was pushed from a running train by thieves in Uttar Pradesh when she resisted them. One of her legs had to be amputated below the knee but the determined athlete went on to become the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest.
