On 15th January I joy Sebastian was traveling from Jalandhar City to Jodhpur on Jammu Ahmedabad Express-train no-9224 (PNR No. 2402079431). While I was traveling, near about 6’o clock I asked a railway vendor (named Baljeet-assumed) for a bottle of water. He granted me a bottle of water branded ‘Rail Neer’ but the bottle was opened and duplicate. So I asked for another sealed one. He not only refused but also asked me to pay Rs. 15 for the given bottle. I refused to give the money as the bottle he gave me was not genuine. He raised voice and hands against me. I also got up and said him firmly that I won’t pay money for such kind of water bottle. My fellow passengers also came to my support and the vendor left the coach quietly.
When the train reached the Bhatinda Station at 6.30 the vendor along with some ten gundas got into my coach no. 5. I pulled the chain but the vendor along with the gundas hit me thoroughly and pushed me to the window side where some of them were with some iron weapons. They hit on my head through the window and bleeding started from my head by seeing the blood and the other passengers approaching the attackers left the train quickly.
I was hit thoroughly for something which was my consumer right. So I got down in the Jodhpur Railway Station and filed an FIR although everone told me it of no use. FIR NO- 0/2010.
I need justice and the concerned gundas should be brought before the law so that there will be no more such kind of incidents for any passengers.
