Man beheaded on train
NEW DELHI - Police are searching for a gang of knife-wielding youths who beheaded a man on a train in eastern India in front of horrified passengers.
Khokon Ghosh, a 37-year-old sweet seller, was set upon on Monday afternoon near Bazarshau station, about 190 kilometres north of the city of Kolkata in West Bengal.
“The assailants escaped after the driver stopped the train midway, hearing passengers scream,” district police superintendent Humayun Kabir said.
“Preliminary investigation has revealed that Ghosh was murdered over some local issues in his village,” he said.
