A 55-year-old man died after allegedly being assaulted inside a train between Titwala and Vasind stations in Maharashtra. The railway police have booked seven people in connection with the matter, an official said on Friday, the PTI reported.

"Two persons, Amol Pardeshi (40) and Tanuj Jammuwal (21), have been arrested in this connection and efforts are on to nab the remaining five," senior police inspector Pandhari Khande of Kalyan railway police told PTI.

"The fight took place when one of the accused tried to take pictures of a female passenger. This was objected to by another person. This led to an argument and Bhoir died after he intervened and was beaten up. He died in a hospital on Thursday," Khande said, the news agency reported on Friday.
