The Vashi railway police reconstructed the sequence of events in which a 25-year-old woman was molested on a local train between Nerul and Juinagar railway stations in the early hours of Sunday.
The victim was shown CCTV footage from the Nerul police station but the accused could not be spotted anywhere.
The police will check the CCTV footage at Belapur and Seawoods stations to check whether the accused had boarded the train from there and if his images were captured. The victim boarded the train from the Panvel-end where there are no CCTV cameras. “The Vashi railway police have called me on Wednesday so that they can prepare a sketch based on my description,” the woman said.
The woman was heading to Thane station from where she was to board a train to Pune to give her Council of Scientific and Industrial Research national entrance test. “We have booked the accused under Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC,” said a senior officer.
