Passengers told the Government Railway Police officials at the Agra Cantt railway station that the bandits entered coaches S8 and S9 around 4 a.m. between Morena and Dholpur. Morena is around 80 km from Agra, while Dholpur is around 50 km. The passengers said the robbers had probably boarded the train in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. They targeted women in the two coaches and jumped out of the running train after passengers from other coaches heard the victim’s screams and rushed to help. Victims Rekha Bharti, Leela Parihar and Vaishali Jain told GRP officials how the passengers were robbed while they were still asleep. The train reached Agra Cantt station at 6.15 a.m. A police case has been registered.
