A 27-year-old woman jumped out of a moving train with her 10-month-old baby and husband after she was allegedly molested by a group of inebriated co-passengers in West Bengal’s Alipurduar, police said on Wednesday.

The incident once again underlined the lack of safety in the country’s railways, which has been dogged by a series of similar incidents in the recent past.
