'Drunk' TTE urinates on woman traveller's head, Railways removes him with immediate effect

Lucknow: Police have arrested a  travelling ticket examiner (TTE) for allegedly urinating on a woman traveller's head in  Akal Takht Express.

Union railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Tuesday said he has been removed from the position for the act.

The Minister tweeted: "Zero tolerance. Removal from service with immediate effect."

The incident happened on board the Kolkata-Amritsar train (number 12317) near Akbarganj before entering the Charbagh railway station in Lucknow late on Sunday night, reports Hindustan Times.

Police told the newspaper that the man was allegedly in an inebriated state when he peed on the head of the woman passenger who was sleeping on the lower berth of the coach.

“The man, identified as Munna Kumar of Begusarai (Bihar), was arrested by the Lucknow Government Railway Police (GRP) and an FIR was lodged against him on Monday. He was charged under IPC Sections 352 (assaults), 354 (assaults or use of criminal force to any woman), and 509 (insult the modesty of any woman),” Sanjay Kumar Sinha, circle officer, GRP, Lucknow, told Hindustan Times.

Meanwhile, an order issued by the Northern Railway said: "Your conduct showing disrespect to women construes serious misconduct, in the process bringing disrepute not only to your own self but entire railways as an organization."

"It is also seen that you are in judicial custody. Taking cognizance of this grave matter, I consider it to be a fit case to adopt the provision of Rule 14(ii). Thus, I hereby deem it fit to impose the punishment of ‘removal from service with immediate effect’ for behaviour unbecoming of a railway servant," the order said.
