    "Four robbers armed with knives threatened 12 to 15 passengers travelling in the train's general coach and decamped with their valuables such as mobile phones," Northern Railway spokesperson Nitin Chowdhary said.

    "The robbery took place when the train stopped at Nizamuddin-Tilak Bridge. One person suffered minor injuries, rest of the passengers are fine," he said.
