Two CRPF jawans were arrested for allegedly making a video-clip of a woman passenger in the Dakshin Express (Hazrat Nzamuddin-Hyderabad) train, police said on Sunday.

While the 23-year-old woman boarded the train's S-10 coach from Vidisha for coming to Bhopal on Saturday, a group of CRPF jawans, who were also travelling in the same coach, started making a video-clip of the woman with a cellphone.

When the woman got suspicious of their activities, she strongly objected to their act and confronted a constable, Dharmendra Kumar, who was allegedly shooting the clip, and tried to snatch the cellphone from him.

In the melee, one of the jawans, identified as Dinesh Kumar Thakur, allegedly assaulted her while another deleted the clip from the phone.

This enraged other commuters and they confronted the jawans and later threw out baggages of some of them. By the time the train reached Nishatpura yard area near the Bhopal station, someone pulled the chain to stop the train.

Later, GRP reached the spot upon getting a whiff of some disturbance en route following which they restored order and when the train reached Bhopal station, the two constables (Dharmendra and Dinesh) were arrested by police on the complaint of the woman.

The duo was later released on bail.

A case has been registered in this regard and further investigations are on, police sources added.
