Anti-Agnipath protest: Protestors vandalise Secunderabad railway station premises, set train ablaze

One person was killed, while eight others were critically injured after the police opened fire to control an angry mob that went berserk at the Secunderabad railway station on Friday in protest against the Union defence ministry’s new ‘Agnipath’ scheme.

The injured were shifted to Gandhi Hospital in Secunderabad. Hundreds of candidates aspiring for army recruitment tests vandalised the main railway station in the Telangana city.

“The general railway police (GRP) forces were forced to open fire at the angry mob after lathi-charge and tear gas shells failed to bring the protests under control,” a senior police official said.
