A woman was allegedly drugged and molested by a ticket examiner and pantry staff in the Ranchi bound Rajdhani Express. An official inquiry has been ordered into the incident by the Railways Department following a complaint by one of the victim’s acquaintance.

Student drugged, molested inside train by railway staff

The horror came to light after the acquaintance tweeted about the incident and asked the IRCTC if any action would be taken against the offenders. “Pantry staff and TT jointly tried to molest her in train, gave her intoxicated icecream. Will any action be taken by railway on erring staff without FIR or he will walk free and will terrorise another passenger. Sad!”  she said.

“The concerned victim is a student and fears she cannot live normal life if entangled in legal hassle,” she tweeted tagging the Minister of Railways and other senior officials.

She further added that the victim has already launched a complaint upon the same.

The IRCTC East Zone has replied to her tweet saying that an inquiry is underway and necessary action would be taken. “We’re sorry for discomfort, matter is taking necessary attention and under process. The concerned AO RNC has been directed to inquire the same and necessary action will be take accordingly.”

Divisional Railway, Ranchi, has further assured that strict action would be taken if the accused are found guilty.
