Alok Bohra, senior divisional security commissioner for Central Railway, called Preeta Saji and asked her to lodge a complaint at the GRP office at Kalyan station. He assured Saji that the accused would be detained within two days. Saji usually boards the first class ladies’ compartment, but boarded a second-class coach on Wednesday.

She was waiting for a train at Vithalwadi station on her way to work in CST last morning. When two successive trains were cancelled around 8.30 am, the 30-year-old accountant decided to board a train in the opposite direction to Ambernath, so she would get a place to sit once it emptied out at Ambernath and started its journey towards CST. This prompted the accused’s assault.
