When the train slowed down just before reaching Guwahati Railway Station in the wee hours today, she was ready with her luggage to get down. The train was at Railway Gate No. 2. Four youths were standing their, and one of them stched her luggage all of a sudden taking the advantage of the slow speed of the train. The girl lost her balance and fell down, and the four youths soon decamped taking the luggage with them.
