The incident took place at Nanded railway station in Maharashtra on Tuesday, August 9.
The TTI (Travelling Ticket Inspector), Parveena, was assaulted by a group of without-ticket travelers after she detained them to produce ticket, as per the primary information.
The lady ticket checker is now admitted to railway hospital where she underwent surgery and had to put around 15 stitches.
After Parveena detained the group, one of the men tried to negotiate with her. Parveena asked them to come to the cabin to discuss the matter and pay the fine. After negotiating for some time, the man agreed to pay the fine and asked if he could borrow from others, but instead coming back with money, he sent his women companions into the cabin. They started shouting at the TTI grabbing her by the arm and mishandling her.
She asked them to leave. But as they reached near the door, they hit hard with the door and the glass door fell down on Praveena, and she got a severe cut on her left hand. She started bleeding profusely as a major nerve was cut. On seeing the blood, the perpetrators left her and started running but the auto drivers waiting outside stopped them.
The railway staff there took her to the railway hospital, but the hospital referred her to the civil hospital as it was a police case. The Civil hospital which was 10 km away also did not admit her. She lost two hours in travel and her condition grew serious. After several requests, railway hospital got her admitted where she is currently recovering.
The railway police registered an FIR on the charges of damaging Railways property, not on the charges of the violence on an officer on duty. The staff alleged that the police is not supporting and saying there are no witnesses.
Parveena said, once she gets discharged, she will file another FIR.
The Logical Indian requests the police to take up the issue seriously and conduct a proper investigation. If we can’t protect the officers on duty then it is a serious concern on the security of the common people.
