A three-member committee, led by DIG Railways Police, has been formed to probe the death of a woman after she was tortured by a cop on Millat Express, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The committee will submit its report to Railways Chairman within three days.

Maryam Bibi was travelling to Faisalabad from Karachi before Eid when as witnesses said started to throw away goods of other passengers.

They called in a police constable and protested her behavior which led to the cop torturing the woman severely before everyone.

Police on Monday said that body of the woman, who was subjected to torture by policeman Mir Hasan on a moving train, was found near Chani Goth Railway Station in Bahawalpur.

Fellow passengers said she herself jumped out of the train and died. The incident happed about a week ago.

The policeman was arrested last week after the video went viral in which he could be seen holding the woman by her hair and hitting her multiple times while other passengers watched silently.

However, a local court in Hyderabad approved the cop's bail on the same day against a surety bond of Rs35,000.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Railways Abdullah Sheikh had said that the incident took place on April 7 on Karachi to Lala Musa-bound Millat Express.

However, just a day after the cop was released on bail, the woman's body was found in Bahawalpur.

According to the police, the railway police officer took the woman, who belonged to Jaranwala's Chak 40 Morr, Faisalabad, with him after violently beating her on April 7.

The victim's brother, Afzal, said that his sister used to work at a beauty parlour in Karachi and she was coming to Jaranwala to celebrate Eidul Fitr. Afzal also demanded that the death of his sister should be investigated.

There were also reports quoting family members that the woman had mental issues.
