Beating of a youth in moving train: NHRC notice to Railway Board Chairman and MP DGP
Taking suo motu cognizance of media reports that a young boy was mercilessly beaten by some fellow passengers for hours on board a Mumbai bound train in the night of the 25th March, 2016 without any action by either the Railway Protection Force, RPF or the Government Railway Police, GRP to save him the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notices to the Chairman, Railway Board and MP's Director General of Police.
NHRC has given four weeks time to both the authorities to submit their reports in the matter in detail.

NHRC expressed its concern over the fact that despite deployment of RPF to monitor security of the passengers in the moving trains and the GRP at every station, no security personnel noticed the plight of the victim between Jabalpur and Itarsi.

In a statement the Commission called the attitude of both the forces as insensitive and careless.

According to the media reports, carried on the 29th March, 2016, the boy, Sumit, had boarded S-2 coach of Mumbai bound Pataliputra - Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Superfast Express from Jabalpur at 11:00 p.m. on the 25th March, 2016.

Reportedly, he had an altercation over drinking water from the bottle of a fellow passenger.

Thereafter, a group of men going to Mumbai for some competitive exam beat and hanged him upside down out of the window of the fast moving train for nearly four hours covering a distance of about 272 kilometers from Jabalpur to Itarsi.
