Patna, Jan. 24 (ANI): Maintaining his stand, arrested Janata Dal (United) MLA Sarfaraz Alam on Sunday said the charges of molestation that have been made against him are completely false and baseless.

“I still maintain that the allegations made against me are baseless,” Alam told the media here.

The Patna Railway Police on Sunday arrested Sarfaraz Alam, who allegedly misbehaved with a woman on the Dibrugarh-New Delhi Rajdhani Express.

“Sarfaraz Alam has been arrested, interrogation is underway,” said District Superintendent of Police A.S. Thakur.

An FIR was registered on Monday against Alam for harassing a couple onboard Rajdhani train.

He has also been charged with misbehaving with the woman passenger.

A case has been filed against the JD (U) MLA at GRP Police Station at Patna junction and he has been booked under Sections 341, 323, 290, 504 and 354A of the IPC.

Earlier too, Alam denied the charges, saying he didn’t even board the train.

“These allegations are baseless. I did not even travel by that train. There is politics behind this to tarnish my image. I will initiate legal action,” Alam said.

“I was in Patna and I went by road and came back. The development work is underway in full swing in Bihar and some people do not like it,” he added. (ANI)
