A 25-year-old woman was injured after allegedly falling from a train in Miryalguda, Telangana, following misconduct by an intoxicated man in the same coach.

The incident happened aboard the Visakha Express as it was passing the Miryalaguda Railway station. Both the woman and the man, in his 30s, fell from the sleeper coach and sustained injuries. They were admitted to different hospitals and are now safe, according to Government Railway Police officials.

The woman, a private school teacher from Hyderabad, was traveling solo to Srikakulam after boarding the train at Secunderabad. Her husband filed a police complaint alleging the drunken man misbehaved and inappropriately touched her as she returned from the washroom, resulting in both falling from the train. However, the man, found in an inebriated state, claimed that a sudden brake application caused the fall when he tried to catch the woman.

Law enforcement officials responded swiftly after receiving information from passengers and transported the injured to hospitals. A case has been registered, and further investigation is underway.
