Mathura: A national level fencing player, Hoshiyar Singh, has died after being allegedly pushed off a moving train by Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel near Mathura in Uttar Pradesh.
The altercation between Singh and GRP personnel broke out when the former entered the ladies’ coach of the train to meet his ailing wife.
His father has alleged that the railway police told Singh to get off the ladies’ compartment or pay some money. Soon, the argument broke out and police personnel allegedly pushed Singh out of the moving train.
“The GRP personnel asked my son to leave the coach or pay Rs. 200… By that time the train started moving,” Singh’s father said.
The victim’s wife, who was inconsolable, demanded strict punishment for the GRP personnel.
“They pushed my husband off the train…I was not well and I called him to the ladies’ coach. He was talking to me when the Railway Police came to him asked what he was doing in the ladies’ coach,” she said.
“In the meantime, the train started moving and they pushed him… I want that strict punishment should be given to them,” she added.
