A lieutenant colonel was beaten up by the public at Guwahati Railway Station on Wednesday for trying to molest a pulse polio worker. GRP official said the incident took place when an inebriated Parvinder Singh Rathod of the Jat Regiment wanted to have the polio eradication medicine from a campaign worker.

When the worker resisted, the officer attempted to molest her. “He first held the hand of the lady and then attempted to molest her,” the official said. A GRP constable who came to the rescue of the worker was also assaulted.

The GRP detained the officer and later handed him over to military police of a nearby transit camp. Army officials were silent over the incident.
