MUMBAI: A former cricketer was arrested Monday after he drove his car onto the platform of one of the busiest suburban railway stations in Mumbai.

Harmeet Singh (24), who represented India in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in 2012 and is said to be into real estate business now, drove his four-wheeler onto platform no. 1 of the Andheri railway station at 7.42 am, the Railway Police said.

The station is being renovated and Harmeet drove his car from a temporary service road built to facilitate transport of construction material into the station, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) said.

An RPF officer said Harmeet was new to Mumbai and did this by mistake. “However, we are trying to find out if he was drunk. As of now, he has been booked under Sections 147 (trespass), 145 (b) (commits nuisance and act of indecency), 154 (endangering the safety of passengers) and other relevant provisions of the Railways Act, the RPF official told New Indian Express.
