Varanasi; 19th January 2023: Passengers of Varanasi express yesterday witnessed a very disappointing and daring robbery between 4 to 5 am. The railway authority of India is considering this as not just a simple case of robbery. Because people got injured and a child got kidnapped. It was very much scary as well as shocking for the passengers.

The dacoits were so daring that they went on with their operation even in presence of the two rail police officials. The A2 coach and B5 coaches were the primary targets of the robbers. The passengers of the train got vulnerable and shocked. They even couldn’t believe what just happened. People lost most of the valuable things they were carrying. Mostly the parents of the kidnapped child got furious. As a response to this unfortunate incident, seven members of the railway protection force got suspended immediately for neglecting passengers’ security.

The secretary of the railway protection force promised that they will take care of every affected passenger. The government has announced a compensation of 50 thousand rupees for every injured passenger. The railway director immediately instructed the Bihar police to investigate the matter of this robbery and asked them to immediately find out the little girl who got kidnapped.

There was nothing but dark inside the coaches. Some people sensed something was going wrong. They kept their things checked. But even in between, some people sensed that they were lacking some things they were carrying. A lady sensed that her purse was gone. Eventually, everybody figured out that a robbery was underway.

A man was coming out of the toilet ran after the robbers and luckily caught the one from the group. Immediately the officer-in-charge of RPF came and investigated the matter. He took the captured person into custody. Passengers were scared enough to take any further steps even inside the train.

The RPF officer-in-charge promised everybody to rescue everything that got robbed. The good news is no passengers got injured and they managed to catch one gang member thus hopefully the investigating team will eventually find the other members of the gang.

The robbery went on for around two hours. They stole every possible valuable item from all the passengers. They even confiscated their mobile phone. The passengers went unable to contact anyone.
