Refused money, beggar threatens to disfigure woman

A beggar allegedly threatened to disfigure a female Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteer, who refused to give him money inside a second-class ladies compartment at CST on Friday.

The complainant, Roshni Raut, raised an alarm after which a male passenger, Devendra Yadav, on the platform nabbed the beggar and hauled him to the GRP outpost. Till the time of going to press, Raut was in the process of lodging an FIR.

Around 7pm, Raut, who was headed home, boarded a Kalyan-bound local at CST. The beggar was inside the ladies compartment. He was cleaning it with rags even as female commuters started taking seats. He then started touching each of them and begging. When he came near Raut, she warned him against touching her. But the beggar persisted, at which Raut refused to give him money.

“The beggar was carrying a bottle in his pocket and he threatened to throw its contents at Raut to disfigure her. Raut got scared as she feared the bottle contained acid,” said her party colleague, who was on the platform when the incident took place.

When Raut told him that she would summon the cops, the beggar started hurling abuses at the police. He then tried to rob Raut’s bag, but she pushed him away with it. Eventually, as the beggar was getting off, Raut raised an alarm. Other female commuters in the compartment were very nervous.

AAP members said that Raut had tried dialling railway helpline numbers, but to no avail.

A female volunteer with the Aam Aadmi party has complained that a beggar threatened to disfigure her when she refused to give him money inside a second-class train compartment at CST on Friday.

After the complainant, Roshni Raut, raised an alarm, a male passenger on the platform nabbed the beggar and hauled him to the GRP outpost. Till the time of going to press, Raut was still lodging an FIR.

The incident took place around 7 pm. Raut was headed home and had boarded the second-class ladies compartment of a Kalyan-bound local. The beggar was cleaning the compartment with rags as female commuters started taking seats. He started touching each of them individually and begging for alms. When he came near Raut, she turned away and asked him not to touch her. The beggar persisted at which Raut flatly refused to give him money. “The beggar was carrying a bottle in his pocket and he threatened to throw its contents at Raut to disfigure her. Raut feared that the bottle contained acid,” said a colleague from the Aam Aadmi party who was standing on the platform when the incident took place.

Raut told the beggar that she would summon the cops, at which he hurled abuses directed at the police. Raut also tried to hit him with her handbag when he tried to rob it. Other female commuters in the compartment were very nervous. Eventually, Raut raised an alarm as the beggar was getting off the compartment. A passing passenger, Devendra Yadav, caught hold of the beggar and handed him over to the GRP.

Aam Aadmi party volunteers alleged that Raut had dialled railway helpline numbers but to no avail.
