Check this out..Got this as a fwd mail from Siva. I don’t know how far is this true. But what you would do if you are in Nimish situation?
A shocking and outrageous incident happened three days ago with one
of my juniors from IIM Lucknow. This happened at Bangalore Railway
Station.The details of the incident are posted below.
He is seeking help from anyone with contacts in media to as that will
probably ensure speedy justice and also help in bringing culprits to
books. Anyone with willingness to help can reach him at 9886179319 or
Thanks and regards,
I would like to bring to notice a certain injustice that I have
subjected to at the Bangalore Railway Station (Majestic). On
September 30 (Friday), 2005, I had been to the station to see off my
fiance and her mother. They took the Karnataka Express (Train #2627)
to Jhansi at 6:30 pm.
On my way out I was asked to present my platform ticket by a railway
official. On producing the same, the TT turned around and told me
"What if I say that you haven’t given me the ticket?" Before I could
react, he along with his colleague pushed me into the adjacent
enquiry cabin and physically manhandled me. I was slapped several
times, my spectacles were grabbed and deliberately crushed by foot,
and my phone was flung away from me. The RPF comprising of one RPF
and four constables, appeared on the scene. The surrounding public
was whisked away. None of the railway police officials cared to
listen to me and they started hitting me indiscriminately with
lathis. They dragged me out, and all the 4 constables continued
hitting me with lathis from Platform 1 to Platform 3/5, till we
reached the station master’s cabin. Racist abuses and threats were
made on the way. At the station master’s cabin, I was told that I
have been charged with a non-bailable offence and would be behind
bars for 15 days.
Not for a single moment was I allowed to speak. All of a sudden a
stranger came to the scene and he claimed that he was there to help
me. Having lost all my physical strength and mental senses, I was
happy to see some sort of help. He, claiming to be V Srinivas from
Infosys, talked to the officials and the railway police in Kannada.
He told me that the only way I was to get out was if I was willing to
pay my way through. Being in no state to make a rational choice, I
gave him my ATM card and pin. He took one of the RPF chaps along with
him and said he would clear the matter. He returned some time later
saying that everything was okay now.
I was asked to sign a statement which said that I hit the police and
TT in a drunken state. I refused. Finally, they pressurized me to
write that I did not produce a platform ticket when asked. I wrote
the same and then V Srinivas took me out of the station. He joined me
in an auto and took me to the ICICI ATM at Anand Rao circle. He
withdrew Rs. 15000 from my ATM and got back. he took the cash under
the pretext that while helping me he had left his wallet in the train
he had left behind and that he would return the same through his
ICICI Internet account. Having broken down mentally I did not
realise that I was being cheated. He then took me to a Samsung
showroom and tried purchasing a cellphone worth Rs. 18500 with my
card. It was only then that I realised what was happening. I grabbed
my card back, caught him by the collar, snatched my cash that lay in
his pocket, and got into a running auto.
I have now realized that all of this was a plan. There is a strong
nexus between the railway officials, the railway police and the
fraudster. The railway officials identify a victim who they think is
well-to-do, the RPF beat that individual till he has no physical or
mental well-being. Then this fraud chap comes on to the scene, takes
advantage of the situation, and takes all your cash away. Also, this
series of events generally occurs on the last day of the month as
they know that the salary gets credited on this day. (This strikes me
now because the self-proclaimed Infy employee, V Srinivas, clearly
asked me whether I had received my salary. He said that he just
wanted to find out if there was cash enough to tackle the case.)
Now three days hence, I have tried to run from pillar to post. I have
been forced to miss office hours in my effort to get justice. But I
don’t want to give up the fight midway. If any of you are in the
media, or have friends/relatives who are in the industry, I’d like to
speak with them about this in greater detail. I can be reached on
09886179319 or 08030933067. I believe it would catalyze my efforts.
Also, please pass this email to all the people who reside in
Bangalore, so that they don’t fall into the same trap.
