The Government Railway Police on Sunday took former MP Chandra Nath Singh,62,in custody after a woman passenger of the Delhi-bound Padmavat Express accused him of misbehaviour. The woman also alleged that Singh was drunk.
Singh was made to deboard the train at Shahjahanpur railway station,and taken to the district hospital for medical examination. The medical report said he was not drunk, said GRP station officer Satya Prasad Yadav.
The former MP,among the SP’s candidates for the 2014 polls,was released after the complainant faxed a letter to Shahjahanpur district magistrate on Monday,withdrawing her complaint and saying she did not want to pursue the case.
According to Yadav,Singh and the woman had argued over a berth in the train. Both had boarded the train from Pratapgarh. Singh reportedly did not have a confirmed ticket,and occupied a berth which belonged to the woman. The latter asked him to vacate it,but he reportedly refused and misbehaved with her.
