A 30-year-old Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable was arrested on charges of molesting a woman on board the Mussoorie Express.
In her complaint to police on Friday, the woman alleged that she was sitting in the ladies coach when the constable, Rajpal, approached her around 4 am and asked her to come sit in his compartment in case she was feeling cold.
“He asked me to come and sit with him in his coach since it was very cold. He then offered me a blanket which I refused to take. But when he insisted, I took it and asked him to return to his coach. When the train reached near Gajraula, Rajpal again came to me and touched me inappropriately while I was asleep.
At first, I thought it was an accident, but when he repeated it, I slapped him and raised the alarm,” the woman said.
The woman also alleged that Rajpal abused her when she cried for help.
When the train stopped at Old Delhi railway station, the woman went to the police station and reported the matter.
She gave a written complaint explaining the sequence of events. After recording her detailed statement, the constable was arrested and an FIR was registered against him, police said.
