A native of Assam, Biju Uprati (20), undergoing treatment at a private hospital for injury, alleged that somebody pushed him out of the Howrah-bound Azad Hind Express at Kalunga near here. 

Government Railway Police (GRP) have registered a case and investigation is on. 

GRP IIC Ajay Das said on Sunday the condition of the youth is stable and his father, Laxam Parsad, is likely to reach here on Monday morning.

Das said the youth, working for a private security agency, had boarded the Howrah-bound Azad Hind Express to attend to his ill mother. He had alleged that someone pushed him out of the crowded general compartment on Friday night.

Das, however, said Uprati perhaps fell from the slow moving train accidentally due to heavy rush at the train’s exit. He belonged to Bodoland in Assam and was travelling with several others of the same region and had no enmity with anybody in the compartment, he added. After the incident, he was brought to the nearby Brahmani Tarang police station and admitted to the hospital.
