In a shocking incident, national fencing champion, Hoshiyar Singh died after being allegedly pushed off a moving train by Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel near Mathura.

The incident took place while he was returning to his hometown Kasganj form Mathura with his family.

He boarded the general coach, while his mother and wife were in the women's coach of the train. After a while, he reportedly went to the women's coach to check on his wife as she was unwell.

It is reported that Hoshiyar was asked to pay a fine of Rs 200 for entering the women's coach, which he refused to pay. The family allege that after Hoshiyar refused to pay the fine, the railway police assaulted him and threw him off the train.

“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... strict punishment should be given to them,” she added.

He won a bronze medal in the under-17 national championship held in Kerala in 2005
