The body of the 21-year-old girl, identified as Radha Kumari, with several injury marks was recovered from the toilet of the Dibrugarh-Rangia Express when the train had stopped at Simaluguri railway station.

Eyewitnesses claimed to have seen injury marks on her face as the girl was bleeding profusely from her nose while a piece of cloth was tied to her neck and her trousers were found lowered from the waist, News Live reported.
The girl came to her Sivasagar home from Jorhat on July 7 after her semester exams ended. She boarded the Dibrugarh-Rangia Express around 8 am on Tuesday for paying a visit to her grandmother in Golaghat.
