Question:

Where is the story set? (You can get clues from the names of the persons and places mentioned in it.) Which language or languages are spoken in these places? Do you think the characters in the story spoke to each other in English?

Answer:

The story is set in North India. We find the mention of Lucknow Express. The names, Hari Singh and Anil indicate that the story is set in a Hindi-speaking area of North India. The wrestling match is another indication of this possibility usually, Hindi is spoken in these places. I think the characters of the story did not speak to each other in English.
