Peegate on train: Drunk ticket collector urinates on sleeping woman aboard Amritsar-Kolkata Akal Takht Express
The pee-gate scandals are seemingly moving from buses and Airplanes to trains now as a drunk ticket collector was arrested for allegedly urinating on a sleeping woman aboard the Amritsar-Kolkata Akal Takht Express.
According to reports, the accused, identified as Munna Kumar—a resident of Bihar who was deployed as Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE) aboard the train—allegedly peed on the woman while she was asleep.
Reports said the woman woke up and raised an alarm while her husband managed to grab a hold of the ticket collector. Soon, other passengers found out about the incident and went on to thrash the TTE for his obscene and shameful act.
The passengers later handed the accused over to the Government Railway Police (GRP) official who detained him and took him into custody.
In a statement, in-charge of GRP Charbagh railway station Navratna Gautam said that a case was registered against the ticket collector on the basis of a complaint lodged by a passenger, identified as Rajesh, a resident of Amritsar and husband to the woman who was urinated upon by the accused.
