MERAgrapeA woman age 25, and her husband, 32, jumped off an Express train with their 10-month old daughter in West Bengal’s Rajabhatkhawa area, after around a dozen co-passengers, who were allegedly drunk, molested the woman and threatened to tie the husband up and gang rape his wife.

Police say the men escaped but railway authorities are coordinating with the local police to find and arrest the culprits.

A doctor at the Alipurduar Railway Hospital said the baby girl and her father suffered fractures in their skulls, while the woman escaped with minor injuries.

In her complaint the woman said the family got off the train at the New Hasimara railway station and asked the guard for help, but he told them to file the complaint at the next station. Officials of course, denied the charge.
