Hyderabad: A passenger travelling on the Tungabhadra Express was injured when some miscreants threw stones at the train on Friday night.
The passenger, K. Raghunath, suffered an injury on his eye and is undergoing treatment at the Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital.
Raghunath, who belongs to Gadwal in Mahbubnagar district, completed post-graduation from Bhavan’s New Science College recently.
On Friday, he was coming to Hyderabad to collect his certificates and boarded the Kachegudabound Tungabhadra Express.
When the train was approaching Falaknuma railway station he went to relieve himself. After that he came out and was washing hands in the basin near the railway coach’s door.
