An FIR was today lodged with the GRP here against JD(U) MLA Sarfaraz Alam for allegedly abusing a couple on board Guwahati-New Delhi Rajdhani Express.
Superintendent of Police, Railways, P N Mishra told PTI that the FIR has been lodged on the basis of a complaint received by RPF from a passenger named Indrapal Singh Bedi against the MLA for allegedly forcibly evicting him from his seat and abusing him and his wife when they protested.
Mishra said Bedi in his written complaint to RPF had stated that the incident happened an hour before the train reached Patna last night.
The RPF team which received the complaint onboard returned to Patna this morning and an FIR was registered with GRP Patna this morning, the SP said.
The passenger further alleged that the MLA was with his bodyguard and in an inebriated condition when he misbehaved with him and his wife.
The incidents involving MLAs of ruling party provided fresh ammunition to opposition BJP to attack Nitish Kumar government.
Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi in a statement asked Kumar “Is your government is not working under pressure of criminals?”
