A mother-daughter duo aged 40 and 15 years respectively jumped off Howrah-Jodhpur Express late Saturday night to escape sexual molestation.


 


They were travelling from Kolkata to Delhi in an unreserved coach when a group of around 10-15 men attempted to rape the minor girl, dragging her into the toilet. The incident took place when the train was between Chandari and Kanpur railway stations.

The two fell unconscious after jumping off the running train. On coming back to their senses, they walked wounded to the Chandari railway station where people called an ambulance and rushed them to the Lala Lajpat Rai hospital.

The mob started teasing and taunting the minor as soon as the train had left Howrah. The men also tried to grope the Class 9 student from Kolkata. Her mother informed the Railway Police Protection Force (RPF) constables twice about the harassment and three of the criminals were nabbed by them.

“The constables accompanied me to the compartment and nabbed three of them. They even slapped them and took them away,” she told Hindustan Times at the hospital, adding the allegation that the men came back within 30 minutes, perhaps after bribing cops.

After the train left Allahabad, the criminals got even more aggressive and threatened to drug and sell off the girl. At around 10 pm, they ambushed her when she was on her way to the toilet.

Hearing her daughter’s screams, the mother rushed to save her before jumping off the train. She had also tried to fight the men due to which the girl’s clothes were torn.

Even after facing allegations of accepting bribery, the North Central Railway which runs the Howrah-Jodhpur Express distanced itself from the incident.

“The incident took place near Howrah, which is in not under our jurisdiction. When she reported the matter at Rasoolabad near Chandari station, the RPF constables provided her all the assistance and got them admitted to hospital,” said Gaurav Bansal, North Central Railway’s chief PRO.


The Logical Indian community is perturbed by the incident. A dozen men attempting to rape a minor girl even after her mother’s complaints to the Railway police, speaks in volumes of the poor safety of women in India. The criminals continued to harass the duo without any fear of the law. Moreover, instead of conducting probe, the North Central Railway is trying to evade blame. We hope that the authorities realise their duty, the failure of which almost took two lives, and bring to justice the criminals.
