Chaudhary shot dead RPF Assistant Sub-Inspector Tika Ram Meena and a passenger in the B5 coach with his automatic weapon. He then killed another passenger in the pantry car and another passenger in the S6. The train (of the Mumbai Suburban Railway Service) then stopped near Meera Road station when the passengers pulled the chain. Chaudhary tried to escape but was caught by the passengers. In October, the police had filed a charge sheet against Chaudhary. A case was registered against them under the relevant provisions of the IPC, Railway Act and the Maharashtra Defeat of Property Act.

A Mumbai court on Saturday denied bail to dismissed Railway Protection Force (APF) constable Chetan Singh Chaudhary for allegedly shooting dead his senior colleague and three passengers in a moving train in July this year. Chowdhury is currently lodged in Maharashtra’s Akola Jail and during his arraignment in the court last month, he filed a bail application through his lawyers Amit Mishra and Pankaj Ghaldyal, in which he said that he felt that They are ‘possessed by evil spirits’ which is why they are behaving so strangely.

The Railway Protection Force, which is investigating the case, had opposed Chaudhary’s bail plea, saying it appeared that he harbored ‘anger and hatred’ against a particular community and was remorseful for his crime. He also said that if he is granted bail, it could create a negative image of the law and create fear, panic and insecurity among some religious groups. Ameesha Khatun, wife of Asghar Sheikh, the victim of Chaudhry’s firing, also opposed her (Chaudhri’s) bail plea, saying the accused was a ‘terrorist-minded person’ and a threat to the country’s national security.

The woman presented her stand in the court through her lawyers Karim Pathan and Fazlur Rahman. The incident took place on July 31 on the Jaipur-Mumbai Central Express near Palghar railway station in Maharashtra. Chaudhary shot dead RPF Assistant Sub-Inspector Tika Ram Meena and a passenger in the B5 coach with his automatic weapon. He then killed another passenger in the pantry car and another passenger in the S6. The train (of the Mumbai Suburban Railway Service) then stopped near Meera Road station when the passengers pulled the chain. Chaudhary tried to escape but was caught by the passengers. In October, the police had filed a charge sheet against Chaudhary. A case was registered against them under the relevant provisions of the IPC, Railway Act and the Maharashtra Defeat of Property Act.
