Bhojpur District Magistrate Pratima S Verma told PTI that the woman from Darjeeling in West Bengal jumped out of the 14055 UP Dibrugarh-Delhi Brahmaputra Express at Jagjivan Halt to escape from the clutches of a molestor.
The 30-something lady suffered injuries on head and legs and has been admitted at Sadar Hospital at Ara, district headquarters of Bhojpur, around 50 km from the state capital.
