Dacoits Seize Control of Level-Crossing, Rob Two PR Employees and Others in Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan


Three unknown dacoits robbed four men, including two Pakistan Railways employees, at a level-crossing on the main railway track between Khanpur and Jetha Bhuta stations on the night of November 9. According to PR sources, the dacoits arrived at a railway level crossing near Chak 4-P and overpowered the gatekeeper on duty, Aslam. They then tied up the PR employee with his clothes and locked him in his cabin. Another gatekeeper arrived and was treated in the same way. The dacoits then intercepted two motorcyclists, Aslam and Sajid, both residents of a nearby village, and locked them in the cabin with the two PR employees. Interestingly, the sources say, the criminals also continued the duty of the PR employees by signaling the passing trains during the robbery. Later, the dacoits snatched cell phones, money, and other valuables from the hostages and fled the scene on the motorcycles of their two victims. Legal proceedings against the dacoits will be initiated for breaching the safety of PR installations and looting the employees and others. A case will be registered against the unidentified criminals with Khanpur Sadar police. PR Multan Divisional Commercial Officer (DCO) and media spokesperson Adnan Marwat did not respond to repeated calls for his stance on the incident.
