Madhya Pradesh minister, wife robbed on train
Madhya Pradesh Finance Minister Jayant Malaiya and his wife were on Thursday robbed at knife point on a train when they were on their way to Delhi.
The couple was in an air-conditioned coach when a dozen masked robbers forced themselves into the coach and robbed them between Agra and Mathura stations in Uttar Pradesh, said Sudha Malaiya, the minister's wife.
"We were in our compartment when someone knocked on the door. Around five to six men barged in when I opened it," she told the media in Delhi.
The criminals took away all the cash and jewellery the minister and his wife had.
The robbers looted people in other compartments as well, she said, adding they fled when the Railway Protection Force reached the spot. - IANS
