Jodhpur: A middle-aged woman railway employee has accused a Senior Divisional Commercial Manager of North Western Railway of harassing her for a period of over one year, police said on Monday.

The woman, a reservation booking clerk of the Jodhpur Division, lodged a complaint with police yesterday, and sought action against the accused, RP Meena, Deputy Commissioner of Police Ajay Pal Lamba said.

"We have registered a case under Sections 341 (for wrongful restraint), 354 A & B (Assault to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC against the accused, and have initiated a preliminary inquiry," Lamba said.

"He had been trying every move to get close to me, and also sent objectionable SMSs and MMSs, which I tolerated for long as I could not muster the courage to file a police complaint against him," said the employee, who lives here alone.

The employee alleged that she had been constantly being harassed by Meena for about a year.

The railway authority, following a departmental inquiry, has sent Meena on leave for 15 days.
