Mumbai, Aug 25: In an incident which puts Mumbai to shame, two women waiting for train at the Borivali station were spat on by commuters travelling in the Andheri-Virar local on the Western line.

The Mumbai Police, which was tagged on Twitter by the victim, has taken cognizance of the incident. A formal complaint has been lodged, the police said, adding that efforts would be taken to identify the culprits.

The incident was reported on Wednesday, when 24-year-old Sanjana Rao, along with her friend were returning from work. While they were walking towards the stairs of platform no 7, commuters on the Andheri-Virar spat gutkha on them.

Rao narrated her ordeal on Twitter:

While speaking to reporters, Rao said she was subjected to a similar torment two years ago. She had then refrained from reaching out to the authorities considering that the gutka chewers may not have seen her at the platform.

However, Rao claims that she is sure that the miscreants this time intently spat on her.

She has appealed the government to take appropriate measures to deal with gutka chewers on trains and Railway platform. Rao said a ban would be the only solution, with authorities strictly implementing it.
