Girls molested on train in Kolkata, even Railway Protection Force cops join in

Yet another bunch of Railway Protection Force molest Girls on Trains!
It is shocking to see the number of incidents of individuals getting thrown out of the running train, molestation of women, etc.
And all this by 'Railway Protection Force', Young soldiers traveling in trains, etc.

The name of the Railway Protection Force should be changed to 'Railway Harassment Force'.

Isn't this Abuse of Position of Power and Authority?

KOLKATA: Molested by a group of ticketless goons and then jeered by drunken cops, it was a nightmare of a train journey for students of a south Kolkata college travelling from Kerala. The traumatized students, on the train at the time of filing this report, will reach Kolkata around 2pm on Tuesday.

Sixty students from the Jogomaya Devi College’s geography department, three teachers (one male) and two group-D staff boarded the 2659 Nagercoil-Shalimar Gurudev Express at Ernakulum around 8.40pm on Sunday. The group had confirmed tickets but when they boarded the train, their seats were already occupied.

‘‘When we requested them to leave our seats, they began abusing us. Then they turned violent and twisted the arms of a few girls. The train had started moving, so we pulled the alarm chain. A group of RPF personnel got in and took away the four persons on our seats,’’ said one lady teacher. But their ordeal wasn’t over.

‘‘The RPF men accused us of pulling the chain ovwr a ‘minor incident’. When we sought help from policemen, they — some who were drunk — laughed and pulled at the girls’ chunris!’’ she said.
