Mumbai, Dec 7: A four-year-old girl was today thrown out from a moving long-distance train by a passenger here following a heated argument with the child's family members over a seat in a general bogie, railway police said.

The girl, Sadhna Jamdade, sustained grievous injuries on head and hands and was rushed to civic-run Sion hospital. Her condition was said to be critical, police said.

The accused Chotu Sharma (20), a resident of suburban Kandivali, was arrested by Government Railway Police (GRP) on charges of attempt to murder after the train reached Kalyan Railway Station.

According to the GRP, the victim's father, Samir Jamdade along with family members and relatives arrived here yesterday to pay tribute to Dr B R Ambedkar on his 54th death anniversary at Chaityabhoomi.

"This morning Jamdade family left for their residence in Kalyan in neighbouring Thane district and boarded Mumbai-Bhusawal train from Dadar railway station at 0530 hours," Deputy Police Commissioner (GRP) Ashok Deshbhratar told PTI.

Seeing this, Sadhna's uncle Sunil pulled the train's chain following which the train stopped and the girl was found unconscious on the tracks, the DCP said.

The victim was immediately rushed to nearby Rajawadi hospital and later shifted to Sion hospital, the officer said.

The co-passengers thrashed Sharma and as the train reached Kalyan Railway station, the accused was handed over to GRP police there, Deshbhratar said.

It was not yet clear where Sharma boarded the train and what was the purpose of travelling, he said adding, "Preliminary details suggest he may have boarded the train at Dadar." PTI
