Incident happened between Chintadripet and Park stations

A Railway Protection Force constable jumped out of a moving MRTS train at the Park station, got into the adjacent compartment of the train and rescued a woman from the clutches of a 26-year-old man who was attempting to rape her on Monday night.

According to the police, K. Shivaji, 26, heard the screams of a woman, who was in the next compartment, when the train left the Chintadripet station. He could not enter that compartment as it was not vestibular. When the train arrived at the Park station, he jumped out and entered the adjacent compartment.

On spotting a man attempting to rape a woman, he pushed the man away and rescued her. The 25-year-old woman was sent to hospital for treatment.

The accused, identified as Sathyaraj of Velachery, was nabbed and handed over to the Egmore Government Railway Police.
