A school teacher working in a private school in Uttarakhand was raped onboard the Pune bound Sampark Kranti Express near Bhopal on July 14, police said on Thursday.

A case was registered at the government railway police (GRP) station, Bhopal, late on Wednesday night after the GRP received a case diary from Bhosari police station in Pune where the victim had lodged her complaint.

According to the GRP, the victim (28), a resident of Pune, was travelling in the sleeper class (S-3) from Delhi to Pune. Her distant cousin, Dhanjay Shrikant Tiwari, a resident of Pune, was also travelling in the same coach of the train. Tiwari works with a private firm in Haryana.

In her complaint, the victim claimed that when the train was passing through Bhopal railway station, she went to the toilet. Tiwari followed her, forcibly locked her inside the toilet and raped her.

When she resisted, Tiwari beat her up and threatened with dire consequence if she dared to disclose the incident to anyone.

The victim, however, narrated the incident to her mother after reaching Pune on the night of July 15. The mother later took her to Bhorasi police station on July 16 and lodged a complaint.

In-charge of the GRP station, Dinesh Joshi said a case had been registered under Section 376, 354,324 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and investigation was on.

“A team will soon visit to victim to record her statement. Thereafter, further investigation will be done,” he said.
