Deccan Chronicle - - CITY -

Hy­der­abad: A 58-year-old man, trav­el­ling in a Nizam­abad-bound train, was at­tacked and robbed at knife-point by four uniden­ti­fied per­sons on Wednesday night. The sus­pects robbed the vic­tim’s mo­bile phone and jumped off the train, when it halted near the Oliphanta bridge for a sig­nal clear­ance. Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Ameerud­din alias Ir­fan was re­turn­ing home after the work. He boarded a Nizam­abad-bound pas­sen­ger train from Se­cun­der­abad. After the train crossed the Oliphenta bridge, the train halted for 20 min­utes. The sus­pects ap­proached the vic­tim, who is work­ing as a painter, and de­manded his mo­bile phone. When he re­fused to part with it, they threat­ened him. They took out a sharp knife, in­jured him and took away the mo­bile phone. “We are ver­i­fy­ing the de­tails with the old data­base to trace the ac­cused,” said Mr B. Pramod, SI Se­cun­der­abad rail­way po­lice.
