A woman MLC of Bihar was on Tuesday involved in a controversy following allegations by a young Wipro engineer that she was molested by a gunner of the politician in Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express.
The victim, who lodged a complaint with the police, also accused Jyoti Singh, the MLC of threatening her and using abusive words against her.
"I changed from the lower berth and took seat number 49... Two persons came around 2.30 am, they started teasing me," she said.
She alleged that the woman politician exhorted her henchmen to throw her out of train.
"She (MLC) was abusing me, she was literally telling others that I am Jyoti, that is why I am not doing anything, had I been Pappu Yadav or Anand Mohan, and had it been their bodyguards, they would have insulted you and thrown you out of train and nobody would have bothered to ask about you," the victim told reporters.
Jyoti Singh, however, denied the charge and said it was the girl who assaulted her. It was a political conspiracy, she claimed.
The victim, who said she was working for the Software major Wipro, recounted how the MLC allegedly tried to bully her by asking her men to take out the gun to teach her lesson.
"She literally said 'Abhi revolver nikal ke lao abhi isko marungi, abhi isko jaan se marungi, abhi isse train se bahar phenk dungi, koi isse puchega bhi nahi (Just bring revolver, I would kill her just now, I will finish her, I will throw her out of the train, nobody would bother to ask her)," the victim alleged. Meanwhile, the passengers demanded action against woman MLC including her arrest.
