Thiruvananthapuram: Three women, including a mother and daughter, were drugged and robbed inside the Nizamuddin-Thiruvananthapuram Central Super Fast train on Sunday.
A woman named Vijayalakshmi told the Railway Police that they were robbed of 35 sovereigns of gold ornaments and two mobile phones.
Meanwhile, the photo of the suspect has been released. The suspect, identified as Agzar Bagsha, is a common thief who is already under the scanner for similar crimes.
According to Manorama News, the woman realised that she and her daughter were robbed after they woke up feeling dizzy at Thiruvananthapuram.
The duo had boarded the train at Agra and was supposed to alight at Chengannur, where they were going to attend the wedding of a relative.
Another woman named Kousalya, who had boarded from Coimbatore to get down at Aluva, has also complained that she was drugged and robbed of a mobile phone and some cash.
It is understood that the compartments were mostly vacant due to the COVID-19 situation.
The trio consumed food upon reaching Coimbatore and they claim to not remember anything until waking up at Thiruvananthapuram.
Vijayalakshmi suspects that someone had mixed drugs in their food.
Manorama News reported that Vijayalakshmi identified the suspect as a fellow traveller.
The Railway Police told Onmanorama that the trio was undergoing treatment at the General Hospital.
