Nagaland: Students returning home harassed at station in Bihar

 

May 27, 2020: Students returning home to Nagaland Dimapur on a special train from Gurugram were harassed in Bihar’s Danapur station on Sunday.

 

These students had been stranded in Haryana’s Gurugram due to the lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.

 

In a sudden turn of events, at around 4 AM, as the train reached Danapur railway station in Bihar, a commotion came to the attention of the passengers of the train – a huge mob of people had started boarding the train.

 

As some of the students questioned them they were informed that neither these invaders have tickets to board the train nor did they have permission to do the same. However, they claimed that the station master of Danapur station had counseled them to board the train

 

Although after trying for some time the boys finally managed to force them out of the train and locked the doors and windows from inside, the mob now started hurling stones at the windows and abusing the passengers of the train.

 

Posting a video of the incident on Facebook a passenger of the same train wrote, “Northeast stranded returnees special train has been blocked at Bihar(Danapur station) and so police are involved with the public, they attack us with stone and not only that but one of the police broke down the window glass and two-person got injured and dhamki diya ki goli se uraa de ga.. Aur Bohot jyda torture Kiya so please share Karo Jitna  ho sakae.”

 

 

The train, later on, started moving once again and reached Dimapur with the North East passengers on board.
