A woman jumped from a speeding express train suffering injuries on her head and legs to escape from molesters who were identified as Army jawans near Ara junction in Bihar's Bhojpur district on Thursday, officials said.

Bhojpur District Magistrate Pratima S Verma told PTI that the woman from Darjeeling in West Bengal jumped out of the 14055 UP Dibrugarh-Delhi Brahmaputra Express at Jagjivan Halt to escape from the clutches of the molesters.

The woman in her thirties suffered injuries on the head and legs and was admitted to the Sadar Hospital at Ara, the district headquarters of Bhojpur, around 50 km from Patna.

One of the molesters, identified as Army jawan Ramesh Kumar hailing from Himachal Pradesh, was caught by an Assam Rifles man AD Upadhyay from the toilet where he was hiding, police sources said.

He was handed over to the Railway Protection Force at Buxar, the sources said.

Inspector General of Police, Rail, Vinay Kumar said in Patna that another army jawan was involved in molesting the woman on the train. The second jawan escaped to another bogey of the train taking advantage of chaos, he said.

The victim travelling in the B-1 coach did not have a confirmed ticket and was sitting on the TT's berth, the IG said.

When the train reached Mirzapur station in Uttar Pradesh, the TT and other passengers were questioned about the incident, the IG added.

In the preliminary inquiry it was established that the victim's husband was a tailor at Darjeeling, Kumar said. He said Patna Rail Superintendent of Police Suresh Chaudhary was seeking more information from the victim at the hospital.

Two FIRs have been lodged, one each at Ara and Buxar, at the GRP police station, police sources said. The DM said the injured girl was carried to Ara junction on a maintenance trolley by rail employees. The DM and Superintendent of Police of Bhojpur M R Naik visited the girl at the hospital.
