Thief dangles outside moving Train
Many thieves often try to snatch the belongings of people traveling by bus or train. Keeping in mind the fact, authorities often show sign boards stating that people should remain careful of being robbed at such places. In an incident, a burglar who allegedly attempted to steal a train passenger’s mobile phone was caught and treated brutally.
The incident is from Khagaria Bihar where a man trying to snatch a mobile phone from a train passenger through the window was caught by some passengers who held him by his hands. As a result, the thief was dangling outside the moving train’s window. The passengers did not let him go even after the Samastipur Katihar passenger train started moving.
In the video, the thief who dangerously dangled outside the train pleaded with the passengers not to leave his hand from the moving train. The train passengers took this thief from Sahebpur Kamal station of Begusarai to Khagaria while he hung through the train’s window. Reportedly, the thief was finally let go when the train was close to Khagaria station. However, there is no information regarding whether any police action has been taken in the incident.
Here’s the video:

When system fails to deliver justice, people have right to do it themselves

I think you have not been in this situation.These people snatch phone/Jewels(while snaching they cut you also) from window when train started moving. By that time victim would have grabbed his hand and train would have speed up. So leaving his hand would be INHUMAN at that point.

May be the thief filed case on those passengers & secular govt arrested them for attrocity 😄

I guess what must have happened is the passengers out of anger must have caught him and held up his hands while the train left suddenly, they didn’t leave him knowingly the fact that it will kill him if they leave him and that’s the reason they carried him!

I am very sure the judiciary will take strict action & the the guilty will be punished , It will be shown that such actions have consequences. I am very sure that the Passengers will be jailed and the thief will be given a reward . After all sinners to have a future 🙄

This is so gruesome ! Even if he was a petty thief , this wasn’t a way to treat him ! The ones who do belong in jail are the ones holding the poor man’s arms and putting his life at risk !
