Nationalist Congress Party MP Supriya Sule alleged harassment by a taxi driver when she arrived at the Dadar railway terminus in Mumbai on Thursday, 12 September.

Sule, who lodged a complaint with the Railway Protection Force (RPF), said that the driver, Kuljeet Singh Malhotra, entered her railway compartment and blocked her way while asking if she needed a taxi.

Even when she made it clear that she did not need one, he “blocked my path, harassed me and shamelessly even posed for photo”, Sule, daughter of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, tweeted.

She clicked his photo so as to file a complaint, she said.

Sule also insisted on touting to be permitted only at designated taxi stands.

The RPF authorities later informed her that he had been apprehended and fined, she added.

“Malhotra (42) was apprehended and booked under sections 145-B (creating nuisance and indecency), 147 (entering in railway premises unlawfully) and 159 (showing rash and negligent manner) of the Indian Railway Act, 1989,” said a senior railway official.

KK Ashraf, senior divisional commissioner of the Mumbai division of Central Railway, told PTI that Malhotra was also fined Rs 260 for not possessing a valid ticket.

Further, city traffic police imposed a fine of Rs 200 on him for not having a licence and another Rs 200 for driving taxi without uniform, Ashraf informed.
