Kolkata: A 35-year-old man who opposed the snatching of valuables at Kankinara railway station in North 24-Parganas late on Friday night, was brutally killed by a gang of miscreants after suffering splinter injuries in various parts of his body. The incident has created panic in the area with commuters raising protests against the poor deployment of police at various railway stations in the Sealdah Main Line. Police said the victim, Biswajit Biswas (35), was returning to his residence at Krishnanagar from Bihar after receiving the news of his elder brother’s death. Biswas missed Naihati Station as he was fast asleep and when he woke up, he realised that he had reached Kankinara station. Without wasting any time, he deboarded in the wee hours. Having found no option to return home, he decided to halt at the station and planned to take the first train to Naihati. While he was waiting at platform number 3 at around 2.30 am, a gang of armed miscreants walked up to him and tried to snatch his valuables. A scuffle broke out which eventually turned fatal as the miscreants hurled bombs on Biswas and fled. The railway police later reached the spot and took the victim to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead.
