A woman jumped from a speeding express train suffering injuries on her head and legs to escape from molesters who were identified as army jawans near Ara junction in Bihar’s Bhojpur district today, officials said.

Bhojpur District Magistrate Pratima S Verma told PTI that the woman from Darjeeling in West Bengal jumped out of the 14055 UP Dibrugarh-Delhi Brahmaputra Express at Jagjivan Halt to escape from the clutches of the molesters.

The woman in her thirties suffered injuries on the head and legs and was admitted to the Sadar Hospital at Ara, the district headquarters of Bhojpur, around 50 km from Patna.

One of the molesters, identified as army jawan Ramesh Kumar hailing from Himachal Pradesh, was caught by an Assam Rifles man A D Upadhyay from the toilet where he was hiding, police sources said.

He was handed over to the Railway Protection Force at Buxar, the sources said.

Inspector General of Police, Rail, Vinay Kumar said in Patna that another army jawan was involved in molesting the woman on the train. The second jawan escaped to another bogey of the train taking advantage of chaos, he said.

The victim travelling in the B-1 coach did not have a confirmed ticket and was sitting on the TT’s berth, the IG said.

When the train reached Mirzapur station in Uttar Pradesh, the TT and other passengers were questioned about the incident, the IG added. In the preliminary inquiry it was established that the victim’s husband was a tailor at Darjeeling, Kumar said.

He said Patna Rail Superintendent of Police Suresh Chaudhary was seeking more information from the victim at the hospital.

Two FIRs have been lodged, one each at Ara and Buxar, at the GRP police station, police sources said. The DM said the injured girl was carried to Ara junction on a maintenance trolley by rail employees. The DM and Superintendent of Police of Bhojpur M R Naik visited the girl at the hospital.

Samir Zaveri is an extraordinary activist. He lost both is legs at the age of 16, when a local train hit him near Borivali and would have almost died, if someone wouldn’t have helped him at that time. Since then, helping every rail commuter, especially accident victims and improving the Railway system has become his mission in life. He is one of the most tireless activists working at almost every issue related with the railways—from medical care for accident victims, to compensation, to security of rail commuters. He got the Railways to install medical facilities at Dadar station through an order from the Bombay High Court.

He even faced the wrath of the Railways and Police for his tireless, never giving up spirit and humble attitude.

 Rape (picture for representation)
According to the police, the victim had arrived at the station with her younger sister late on Tuesday night. Since it was very late, the two decided to wait for the morning before heading to their home in Vishnu Garden.
NEW DELHI:  In a shocking case a  railway special force constable, along with an accomplice, allegedly gang-raped a 20-year-old woman passenger on Tuesday night near the VIP waiting room of the New Delhi Railway Station, which is in line to be declared a ‘world-class’ station.The constable, Pintu Singh, 24, and his friend Hawan Pratap Singh, 21, have been arrested and an FIR registered . According to the police, the victim had arrived at the station with her younger sister late on Tuesday night. Since it was very late, the two decided to wait for the morning before heading to their home in Vishnu Garden.

“After the younger sister had volunteered to look around for a locker room, the two accused convinced the victim to come with them to a second-floor waiting room in the VIP arena of the station, near the international tourist information office. They took her to room 201 and raped her there,” said a GRP official.

Cop suspended after test confirmed rape

Cops are checking claims that the woman was known to Hawan, a resident of Tilak Nagar. Pintu Singh, posted with the 8th Railway Protection Special Force battalion in Delhi, has been suspended.

“We arrested the RPSF constable on Wednesday morning after the medical test of the victim confirmed rape. Investigations are on,” said DCP (crime and railways) Sanjay Jain.

Sources said there was some delay in the arrests because the victim’s statement initially appeared a bit contradictory.

Railway officials said that they have decided to take prompt action to send a stern message to the forces.

“We have come to know that there was also a financial dispute between the woman and the two men over a sum of Rs 7 lakh. However, until proven guilty, we have suspended the constable. We are in talks with RPF, RPSF and GRP on how to make the station complex safer,” said a Northern Railway spokesperson.

Cops said they would examine CCTV footage in the railway station to gather information on the sequence of events

The police have arrested the constable Pintu Singh(24) and his friend Hawan Pratap Singh(21) on the charges of rape.
