One dead after train arrives at wrong platform in UP's Harauni railway station; angry mob threatens to set track on fire

A major ruckus broke out at the Uttar Pradesh's Harauni railway station near Unnao after a one person was killed and two others injured in a stampede on Monday morning. 

According to initial information, the stampede was caused by misinformation about the arrival of 64206 Kanpur-Lucknow Memu passenger. The train arrived at platform number 4 while the passengers were waiting at platform number 3. As the train entered the wrong platform, the rush to catch the train caused a stampede, crushing one person two death. 

The incident enraged the passengers who ransacked the station and a train while threatening to set the tracks on fire. Hundreds of protesters blocked the rail traffic during rush hour, affecting traffic on the Kanpur-Lucknow rail division. 

Several trains, including Tata Chhapra Express and Raebareli passenger, were waiting for the line to clear at different stations for over one hour.
