The victim, identified as P. Krishna (15), was found lying on railway tracks near Mancheswar railway station in an unconscious state with injuries all over his body, sources said.

On being informed by locals regarding the incident, Nandankanan police reached the spot, rescued the boy and admitted him to Capital Hospital here.

“I was coming from Vizag to Cuttack on Chennai-Howrah Coromandel Express to meet my relatives. A TTE asked me to produce ticket. As I was travelling without ticket, the TTE asked me to give fine. When I said I have no money, he pushed me out of the train,” Krishna said.

The Government Railway Police (GRP) has started investigation into the incident by interrogating 3 TTEs who were on duty in the train.
