Jodhpur Railway Employee accuses Sr.DCM/JU of Molestation

Jodhpur Jn (JU) NWR: A middle-aged woman railway employee, working as a reservation-cum-booking clerk on the Jodhpur Division of North Western Railway (NWR), has accused a Senior Divisional Commercial Manager (Sr.DCM) of the same division of NWR of harassing her for a period of over one year, police said today.

The woman lodged a complaint with police yesterday, and sought action against the accused, R P Meena, Deputy Commissioner of Police Ajay Pal Lamba said.

“We have registered a case under sections 341 (for wrongful restraint), 354 A & B (Assault to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC against the accused, and have initiated a preliminary inquiry,” Lamba said.

“He had been trying every move to get close to me, and also sent objectionable SMSs and MMSs (from Mobile Number 9001198950), which I tolerated for long as I could not muster the courage to file a police complaint against him,” said the employee, who lives here alone.

The employee alleged that she had been constantly being harassed by Meena for about a year.

The railway authority, following a departmental inquiry, has sent Meena on leave for 15 days.
