“I opened my eyes as I felt something against my lips. I was shocked to see a man’s hand. I held on to his hand and twisted his fingers. I tried reaching out to a person in the berth below me for help but he didn’t bother. I was shouting but no one cared to respond. This happened around 1.10 am. Just two people, scriptwriter Unni and another passenger, Renjith, came forward to help.” Sanusha told.[ecp code=”4″]
As the two men went to look for the TTE or the Train Ticket Examiner, Ms Santosh says she didn’t allow the alleged molester to move. “Once the TTE came and got the information, he called the next railway station and the railway police were informed.

An FIR has been filed under IPC section 354 and the accused has been sent to custody for 14 days.
