India is witnessing protests from thousands of defence job aspirants, who are opposing the Central government’s new Agnipath scheme for recruiting soldiers across the three services.

After burning a bogie train in Bihar on Thursday, another train has been set on fire on Friday at Secunderabad railway station.

In order to control the mob, the Telangana police allegedly open fired at the protesters, which resulted in death of a person and several others are critically injured. The injured were shifted to Gandhi Hospital in Secunderabad.

According to the police, hundreds of agitators stormed the railway station and ransacked stalls and offices with sticks and stones on platform numbers 1 and 2.

“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.

GRP forces allegedly opened around 15 rounds of fire to control the mob. Two police constables too were injured in the stone pelting. Some passengers were also injured in the incident.
