Passenger harassed

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, AUG. 27. Some men in an inebriated state reportedly got into the reserved compartment for women of the Jammu-Tawi Express tonight and refused to leave despite protests by the women.

According to Sunil Mehra, a resident of East Patel Nagar, he had gone to see off his wife at Old Delhi railway station at 9-10 p.m. When they entered the compartment No. S-6, he found that the first six berths -- all reserved for ladies -- were occupied by a couple of men who were consuming liquor. When he objected to their presence, the two men passed objectionable remarks.

Mr. Mehra then approached a Railway Police Force personnel on the platform requesting him to sort out the matter. He told him that they were Delhi Police personnel and that he could not do anything. An exasperated Mr. Mehra then got in touch with the train ticket examiner, who too expressed his inability to remove them and told him that they would get down at Panipat or Sonepat.

The businessman then tried to contact the Station Master, but in vain. "My wife had to go in emergency. With the apathy of the authorities being so blatant, how can I be assured of her safe journey?" asked Mr. Mehra.
