Ashabul and his wife, along with their 10-month-old daughter jumped off the Mahananda Express in a jungle. Prior to that, his wife had been molested and 10 to 12 men in an inebriated condition had also attempted to rape her in a general compartment of the train, on the night of 22 September.
They were spotted by Rjabhatkhawa forest officials. Once the railway police was informed, they were admitted to the Alipurduar Railway hospital. The railway police is investigating the incident.
