In the other incident, a 34-year-old man was found dead in a train returning from Dhola in Gujarat, the SP said.

The victim was identified as Hiralal Bind, who was found lying unconscious during the checking of the train after all its passengers had deboarded it at Lucknow.

He was rushed to Balrampur Hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, the SP said, adding his family members have been informed.
