"We were in our compartment when someone knocked on the door. Around five to six men barged in when I opened the door", Sudha Malaiya, wife of the minister, told media persons in Delhi.

They took away all the cash and jewellery the couple were carrying, she added.

The dacoits looted people in other compartments as well. She said the robbers fled locking the doors from outside when the RAF personnel arrived on the spot.

All the robbers were dressed in the same manner and had covered their faces with a piece of cloth.
