Dipak Sharma (40), a resident of Dwarik Jungle Road in Bhadrakali, was travelling in the UP Howrah-Bandel Matribhumi Ladies' Special suburban local train last evening, when he was
allegedly pushed off by an on-duty lady Railway Protection Force constable near the Amtala area, said Railway police officers.
Passengers of the train assaulted the lady constable once the train reached Hind Motor station at around 7.55 pm.
As news of Dipak's death spread in the area, angry residents joined the protests and blocked tracks. They also targeted two other trains and pelted stones, smashing window panes and damaging the coaches.
Senior officers of the Government Railway Police said a huge police force reached the area, but protesters also pelted stones at the personnel. The blockade was lifted after police resorted to cane charge.
