Hubballi: A 45-year-old man was found murdered on one of the coaches of the Guntakal-Hubballi passenger train (07388) on Thursday night.
The police said that the man, who was wearing a crimson-red shirt and grey pant, was found lying in a pool of blood in one of the coaches of the train. The platform beat police, who, while routinely checking coaches after the arrival of the train at Hubballi station, found the dead body. Identification of the body has yet to be done, as the police found only a cell phone that was switched off, except that the victim had nothing in his pockets, said the police.
The train was delayed yesterday; the train arrived at 1.15 am and the entire train had very few passengers when it arrived in Hubballi. The miscreants might have taken advantage of the situation and murdered him in between stations, said the police. The body shifted to KIMS, and an investigation is going on, said the police.
