The 15-year-old girl who was thrown out of a moving train in Samastipur on Wednesday was released from the hospital and reunited with her parents, who had rushed to Dalsinghsarai (Samastipur) from Muzaffarpur on Thursday.

Station house officer of Samastipur Government Railway Police Binod Ram said the police have recorded the girl's statement before she was released from the hospital.

"She has accused her neighbour, Mohammad Makki, and his two associates of kidnapping and pushing her from a running train with the intention to kill her," the SHO said.

The girl, a resident of Baruraj in Muzaffarpur, was found unconscious on the tracks near Dalsinghsarai railway station in Samastipur on Wednesday and subsequently admitted to a local government hospital in serious condition.

She told the police that she was kidnapped by a youth of her neighbourhood and his two associates when she was on her way to attend her coaching classes on July 2. For two days, she was confined in a room and the next day she was taken to Sugauli station where they boarded the Bagh Express to reach Muzaffarpur.

"She was thrown out of the train between Dalsinghsarai and Nazirganj railway stations following which she suffered multiple injuries. The alleged kidnapper was putting pressure on her for marriage, a proposal she had declined," said interrogators of the girl.

She also told them that the alleged kidnapper was harassing her for the past one year.

"He (the kidnapper) had cleared the Matriculation (Class X) from the school where I am enrolled," said the girl, a student of Class IX.

Shashi Shekhar Sharma, the doctor attending to the victim, said: "Her father reached here on Thursday and requested me to release her from the hospital. We released her on her father's request," he said.

SHO Ram said the victim's statement would be forwarded to the Baruraj police station. "Her father told us he would first talk to her daughter and then decide on what to do with the accused," the SHO said.
