While returning from Delhi after Eid shopping in 2017, four young Muslim boys namely Junaid, his brother Hasim, friends Moin and Mausim were attacked in a third coach of a Mathura bound train. They were allegedly playing Ludo while sitting on the seats when some passengers asked them to vacate the area. They soon started misbehaving and abusing the boys and the four of them decided to get off the train at Faridabad.

They failed in their attempt to get out of the coach because of the rush at the railway station. The mishandling and verbal abuse allegedly continued and matters got worse when one of the assailants took out a knife and stabbed Junaid when he tried to intervene and stop them from attacking his brother and friends.

When the train stopped at Asaoti Railway Station, Junaid was thrown out of the train and was declared dead when he reached the hospital. After Junaid’s death, an FIR was registered the next day by his family members. Here is a timeline to understand the shocking events since then:
