A Dadar resident was on Tuesday arrested for breaking and damaging an LCD screen on the Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express last month.

The Railway Protection Force (RPF) arrested Nandadeep Sandeep Keer, after going through the passenger reservation chart from the IRCTC and scanning cell phone call records.

The case was registered on June 10.

The high-speed train from Mumbai to Goa, the fastest so far between the two cities, made its first trip amid much fanfare in May.

The train boasted of amenities such as WiFi, GPS and CCTV cameras, unique features such as automatic doors, secured gangways, infotainment screens for each passenger, reading lights above every seat and vaccum bio-toilets, among other facilities.

But soon after the first trip, the train came back with fewer headphones, damaged infotainment screens and with waste strewn all over.

Keer damaged the LCD screen on seat number 49 on the C11 coach, said an RPF official.

Keer, however, had himself booked on seat 54.

He was arrested under 145(b), 145 (c) and 147 of the Railway Act and in court. He has been fined Rs 22,000 for damaging government property
