MUMBAI: A 13-year-old girl on Sunday jumped out of a moving local train near the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in south Mumbai after a man entered the ladies compartment, fearing that that man would molest her.

The girl has suffered head and leg injuries and is currently hospitalised.

Payal Kadam, according to the railway police station, was traveling to Kalyan after attending her tuition. She boarded the train from CSMT on Sunday morning, with no commuters on-board in the ladies compartment she was in.

In her statement, the girl told the police that as the train started pulling from the terminus, she saw a man boarding her compartment.

Kadam said she had pointed out the man that he had got into the women’s compartment. But when the man told her to keep quiet and moved closer to her, she panicked and jumped out of the moving train, fearing that he would molest her as she was alone.

Based on her complaint, a case under IPC sections 354 (molestation), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), as well as relevant sections of the Railways Act, have been registered against the unidentified man.

The police are examining all CCTV cameras on the platforms to trace the man.
