The passengers strongly protested the matter and staged a protest demanding immediate arrest of the youth.

The police, who were present, intervened and allowed youths to travel in another bogey after which the passengers deboarded from the train and protested for more than an hour.

After coming to know about the development, Hindu activists and Bajrang Dal members rushed to the railway station and joined them in protest.
