A staff member of Rajdhani Express was arrested for molesting a 23-year-old student in the train. According to the police the arrested person was working with the catering department and the train was coming to Delhi.

“The incident took place around 6.30am when the victim was sleeping. In her complaint she said that she felt someone was touching her. She immediately woke up and raised alarm,” said a senior police officer requesting anonymity. The incident took place in the two- tier compartment of the Trivandrum Rajdhani Express train.
