The deceased has been identified as Munni, and her two sisters, Albul (12) and Saleema Khatoon (4) are in a critical condition in a hospital here. The police are yet to trace their father and uncle.

According to Railway Protection Force (RPF) inspector (Sitapur) Dhananjay Singh, the eldest sister, Albul, said their father and uncle were drinking alcohol and had a brawl, after which, she alleged, her uncle threw the sisters out of the train.

Their father, Iddu, and uncle, Iqbal, are residents of Motihari district in Bihar and work in Punjab. The Motihari police have been approached for help, he said.

While Munni was found dead at Ramaipur halt, around 11 kilometre from Biswan town in the district, Albul and Saleema were found injured at different places, the inspector said, adding that the matter is being investigated.
