    According to reports, the incident happened on Thursday night inside the coach reserved for the handicapped, News18 reported.

    The video shows how a woman was being beaten, thrashed and molested by a man. The graphic video even shows a guard standing in the adjacent compartment separated by a grill.

    It is learnt that the assailant, identified as Rafique Shaikh, apparently tried to molest and strangle the woman on the moving train. He had allegedly borrowed a lot of money from her and then later started assaulting her, according to a Times of India report.

    According to the eyewitness, who shot the video, there was a constable in the next coach but he was unable to intervene as the train was moving and the coaches were separated by a barricade.

    Soon after the incident came to light, the co-passengers alerted the Dadar GRP (Government Railway Police) about the assault.

    Meanwhile, the accused has been detained and was booked and a case has been booked under Section 307 of the IPC (attempt to murder).
