KOLLAM: A complaint reached railway police about an elderly man assaulting a woman inside a train heading towards Kerala. The woman, a native of Tamil Nadu was going to Kollam from Villupuram. The incident took place on Saturday night.

The incident is said to have taken place before the train reached Virudhachalam station. The woman and the elder passenger had a verbal duel over using the phone charging spot. This altercation soon turned worse and it is alleged that the elder passenger grabbed the woman’s hands in an attempt to beat her up.

When the train reached Tiruchirappalli station, the old man deboarded the train. The woman who was shattered by the happening informed Tiruchirappalli Railway Police about the incident. She then filed a complaint and was advised by the police to avoid her night journey alone.

The woman says that there was no police security in the compartment nor did the TTE come for her help when the incident took place. As per reports, the women had registered a complaint with Tamil Nadu police on the issue.
