The Andheri police have arrested a 24-year-old youth for allegedly misbehaving with a woman in Mumbai Metro rail and assaulting a security guard after being detained by him on Saturday morning. The accused was in an inebriated condition at the time of the incident, said the cops.

According to the police, at around 11.30 pm the arrested accused Ramsingh Dange who hails from Madhya Pradesh boarded a Metro train under the influence of alcohol. He misbehaved with a girl who was standing next to him, said a police official.
