Putting his own life in danger on Monday night, this Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable overpowered a man who was sexually assaulting a woman on a moving train.
A Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable on Monday night overpowered a man who was trying to sexually assault a 25-year-old woman on a Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) train. The RPF constable captured the accused and rescued the woman. The accused was identified as S Satyaraj (26) and arrested by the Government Railway Police (GRP) later a local court sent the accused to jail, The Times of India reported on Wednesday.
The railway cop K Shivaji was on a night patrol with another RPF constable and sub inspector (SI) S Subbiah. They were travelling on a train from Velachery to Chennai Beach. They heard screams from the adjoining women’s coach around 11.45pm when the train pulled out of Chintadripet station, police said.
The report said as MRTS trains don’t have a vestibule to move from one coach to another, RPF constable Shivaji waited till the train slowed ahead of next halt at Park Town. The train was still rolling on, Shivaji jumped off the moving train and entered to the adjacent coach of still moving train. There he found Satyaraj trying to sexually assault the victim. The constable pushed the accused away and saved the victim, the police said.
Soon the other members of Shivaji’s team reached there and found the victim unconscious. Her clothes had been torn and lips bleeding. An ambulance was called and took her to Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital. The doctors declared her condition as stable, the report said.
Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel deployed with the Chennai Egmore Railway Station have booked Satyaraj for attempt to rape, the report said.
GRP head Pon Manickavel met the victim woman in hospital and she told him about constable Shivaji’s heroics who had saved her. “I have given a cash reward of Rs 5,000 for the services of the RPF,” TOI quoted IGP Manickavel as saying.
