BHAGALPUR (BIHAR): Gunmen fired at and injured the station master of a railway station near here and assaulted an RPF jawan in Bhagalpur district, police said today.

The unarmed jawan, Manohar Lal Yadav, was attacked for trying to save an elderly couple from being looted at Katariya station, Superintendent of Police, Railway, Katihar, Dilip Kumar Mishra said.

"After being thrashed, Yadav rushed to the chamber of the station master Rishikesh Kumar. He bolted the door from inside. The attackers chased Yadav and fired through the window injuring the station master," the SP said.

The gunmen had thought that the RPF man might raise an alarm, he said adding that other RPF personnel could not intervene as they were carrying only batons.

The two have been hospitalised, the SP said.
