Jan. 18: A person was shot dead and two others suffered bullet injuries early this morning on a passenger train between Sugauli and Semra railway stations in East Champaran district, around 180km northwest of Patna.

The deceased, Chandra Bhushan Prasad alias Sheonath (31), was travelling on Gorakhpur-Muzaffarpur (2530) passenger train. He was shot at around 2.45am.

The injured duo Damodar Prasad, (29), the younger brother of Chandra Bhushan, and Darshan Sah, (22), a student of Bagaha in West Champaran district were travelling in the same coach.
