Kolkata, Mar 20: A bodyguard of Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar allegedly urinated on two passengers on the Rajdhani Express early on Monday, reports ‘The Times Of India'.
The bodyguard then pulled out his service revolver and threatened them into silence.
Aryak Dutta, one of the passengers, is a Calcutta high court lawyer.
He could not name the policeman in his complaint since he was listed as 'MP's attendant' on the AC-II coach.
Kakoli was in a first class coach with her dog. She did not take any calls. Late Monday night, she sent an SMS saying, "Nothing happened."
Dutta said, "I was going to Allahabad with a client. The man occupying berth 19 said he was Dastidar's security guard. He said the MP was in an AC-I coupe."
Dutta was sleeping on the upper berth when, around 2am, he was woken by some movement.
"The policeman was standing nearby, drunk. He was urinating on my client who was on the lower berth. My client cried out and I pushed the policeman lightly. He lost his balance but straightened up and continued to urinate on his legs and my luggage," said Dutta.'
The cop then whipped out a revolver. "My client was livid and demanded the policeman to clean up. I advised him not to quarrel with an armed man. Other passengers had woken up by then. We called out to the TTE and the coach attendant," Dutta said. Dutta and his client wrote in the complaint book and later filed an FIR at Allahabad station.
Railway officials said they do not know if the passenger mentioned in the complaint is a policeman.
"We haven't yet seen the complaint as the train has not yet returned from New Delhi. We have spoken to the train staff and they confirmed a complaint was lodged. We don't know whether he was a policeman. He was registered as an attendant to the MP. It is alleged that he misbehaved with other passengers," a railway official in Kolkata said.
Dutta claimed his client's clothes and their luggage were spoilt. Dastidar, who is in Delhi, refused to take calls but replied to an SMS requesting her to comment on the matter. Allahabad GRP sources confirmed they had received a complaint against a Rajdhani passenger travelling on berth 19 of the AC-II tier coach.
