This is the moment a daredevil hangs on for dear life off the side of a train as locals urge him to stop – before they later thrash him with sticks and kick him in the head for his antics.
The incident took place on a train journey from the city of Saharanpur to Dehradun in the northern Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand respectively.

Reports said that startled commuters called for the daredevil to come back into the train, but he ignored their pleas.
When he got off at his stop, several angry passengers confronted him and allegedly assaulted him.
Eyewitnesses claimed that the man was rude to the upset passengers and got a beating as a result.
In the footage, the young man is seen hanging from the side of the train as it thunders along the tracks.
Clinging onto the window bars, he appears to be playing up to the cameraperson filming him.
In the next scene, an angry passenger in a yellow top is seen hitting the prankster with a stick before kicking him to the ground.
While lying on the tracks, the passenger gives him a final boot to the head which appears to momentarily stun him.
It is unclear whether the authorities are investigating the incident.
