SHAJAPUR: A 55-year-old woman was killed after being allegedly pushed out by a Ticket Checker (TC) from the sleeper coach of Malwa Express train at Bercha station.

The woman identified as Om Kumari Temre. The incident took place yesterday, a railway official said today. Her son Ravi and daughters Neha and Shalu alleged that the TC had pushed them and other passengers after they entered the reserved compartment as there was no place in the general coach. Their mother lost balance and fell down and came under the wheels.

Maxi police post in-charge N Pathak confirmed the incident but said that whether Temre was pushed from the train or fell on her own is a matter of probe. Soon after getting information about the incident, Railway Police personnel from Maxi station reached the spot and took her body into possession.

The victim was on her way to Bhopal from Shajapur after visiting the bereaved family of one of her relatives along with her children. A few eyewitnesses said that when some of the passengers entered the reserved coach, the TC shouted at them and asked them to get down from the moving train at Bercha station. Temre lost balance while getting down and came under the train.

Western Railway’s Ratlam Division PRO, Jitendra Kumar Jayant, said "if the family members are alleging that she was pushed by the TC, then it can be ascertained only after the probe".
