Actually, Arun Bhuyan, a resident of Jharkhand, was returning home with his friends on the occasion of Diwali. On October 20, there was a dispute over the ticket around the Chheoki station in Prayagraj, after which the GRP jawans pushed them down from the train.
Why did the controversy happen?
According to the report, Arun used to work living in Mumbai. Arjun was returning from the train with his friends Bhuyan and Hari. According to Arjun, when he reached the station, the train started running and he had to board the train without taking a ticket. When TTE came, he got the ticket made in the train itself.

Police sent the body for post-mortem. On the second day, action was taken against both the soldiers on the complaint of friends.
