Barelli: Sonu Singh, a soldier who lost a leg after allegedly being thrown from a moving train by TTE, died in hospital while receiving treatment. A Government Railway Police (GRP) official said on Thursday that he was 31 years old.
Sonu Singh, a resident of Ballia in Uttar Pradesh, died on Wednesday night before an additional manslaughter charge was filed against Travel Ticket Examiner (TTE) Supan Bore, he said.
Ajit Pratap Singh, who is in charge of inspector GRP Bareilly, said the soldier’s body was handed over to his family following an autopsy on Thursday.
A case was registered against Bore based on a complaint from subedar Harendra Kumar Singh.
Sonu Singh was allegedly pushed off the Dibrugarh-New Delhi Rajdhani Express on November 17 on platform 2 of the Bareilly Junction railway station. Bore is still absconding.
Following a complaint from subedar Harendra Singh, Sonu Singh was sent to the Rajput camp in Jaipur. He was on his way to Derry when he disembarked from a train at Bareilly station at around 9.15am to collect a water bottle.
As soon as the train moved in five minutes, he wanted to get on it. However, Bore allegedly pushed him, so he lost his balance and fell under the train.
Subedar Singh said in the complaint that one of his legs was severed and the other was severely crushed.
Doctors performed three operations on Sonu Singh at the military hospital, but on Monday his badly injured leg also had to be amputated.
Inspector Ajit Pratap Singh said he remained unconscious during that time and died on Wednesday night.
He said four teams had been dispatched to arrest Bor, adding that Sonus Singh’s statement could not be recorded because he remained in a coma after the incident.
Railway officials had earlier said that Bor pushed Sonu Singh in a fit of anger after they had a dispute over the ticket.
