A senior travel ticket examiner (TTE) was arrested on Wednesday for molesting a 26-year-old woman passenger on the Chennai-bound Shalimar Express.
The woman, a resident of Seven Wells, was returning to Chennai after visiting her parents in Nellore. She boarded the Shalimar Express with an unreserved ticket and requested the TTE, Ramarao, to allot her a berth. He asked her to pay Rs. 150 and got her a seat in the 2nd AC compartment. After a while, the TTE began making advances on her. She tried to hide in the toilet but the TTE continued to harass her. The woman contacted her husband in Chennai who informed the Government Railway Police. The TTE was nabbed when the train reached Central.
