A 54 year-old man who claimed he was a functionary of a political party was arrested for allegedly assaulting a Central Railway ticket checker on Friday, police said. Arun Maruti Hankare, who claims to be from Republican Party of India (A), had threatened and assaulted ticket checker Anand Singh in Nerul station in Navi Mumbai on Friday when the latter was in the process of fining the accused's son, said a railway police official.

"Hankare's son had stepped off a first-class coach without a ticket. The boy called up his father who came there and abused and assaulted the TC. He also told Singh he had earlier hit a woman TC in Navi Mumbai in September," he said.
