A couple was caught by the Railway Protection Force while they were trying to get intimate at Dadar station. The man was charged under the Railway Act, while no action was taken against the woman.
The man was identified as Sanjay Bhure (25), a resident of Wadala. He works with a private bank in Colaba, while the police did not disclose much about the woman, except that she is 23 years old.
According to RPF officials, the incident took place last Monday at 11 pm.
The couple was trying to get intimate near the Dadar railway ticket counter. Several people ignored them, but some who were with their families objected.
A few went up to the couple and asked them to stop, but they did not.
A few people who were buying tickets informed the RPF officials. Three RPF constables, Rakesh Sharma, Sunil Gadakh and Sanjay Salunkhe, went to the couple and asked them to stop but they continued to kiss and touch each other.
