GUWAHATI, Aug 8: The Railway Protection Force (RPF) arrested one S Karaiba Wilson from the Dimapur-Kamakhya B G Express on Wednesday morning allegedly for attempting to rape a female fellow passenger. The victim, along with her brother, boarded the train at Lumding on Tuesday night. As soon as the train left Lumding station, accused Wilson attempted to commit the crime in vain. Immediately, her brother, co-passengers, and the RPF escorting the train caught the offender and took him under the RPF’s grip. After reaching Guwahati railway station, the RPF handed over the accused to the Government Railway Police (GRP) for necessary action. However, since the crime occurred at Lumding, the case was accordingly referred to the Lumding GRP later. Accused Wilson hails from Manipur.
