A gang of 13 robbers robbed over 50 passengers at knife-point inside the LTT-Patliputra Superfast Express between Kalyan and Igatpuri stations in the wee hours of Tuesday . However, only five people filed FIRs, so the amount robbed could not be determined.
GRP officials said they have formed three different teams to nab the robbers, who may be professionals. Most of the victims were reportedly daily wage labourers, many of whom were returning to their villages as they had no work following demonetisation.
The case was initially registered with the Igatpuri GRP ,
the train's first station of halt after the incident, and later transferred to the Kalyan GRP as the robbers had boarded the train at Kalyan station.
The GRP sources said 13 robbers, all aged 20 to 25 years, boarded the unreserved compartment of the train in Kalyan when it reached there at 12.40am on Tuesday , on its way to Bihar. Inside, they threatened several passengers with knives and even assaulted some, taking away their cash and mobile phones. The robbers later pulled the chain near Khardi, an isolated station about an hour away from Kalyan, and escaped. Passengers then informed the guard about the in cident, who alerted the RPF personnel in a reserved compartment. When the train reached Igatpuri, only five of the over 50 victims filed an FIR.
Datta Pable, senior inspector of the Kalyan GRP said, “We have formed three teams and are searching for accused on the basis of CCTV footage.We will nab the robbers soon.“
In his complaint, Sakinaka resident Abdul Salim said, “I received the news of my sister's husband's death and in a hurry I boarded the unreserved compartment from LTT.When it crossed Kalyan station, we noticed some youths who had boarded the train started threatening passengers brandishing knives they robbed cash valuables and mobiles. They took away the four notes of Rs 2000 that I had with me as well as my mobile phone.“ Another passenger, Mohammed Niyazuddin, said the robbers spoke in Marathi and seemed to be professionals.
