I had a waiting list no.7 for the reservation in the sleeper class ,when i was travelling back from chengannoor to kannur by malabar express (Train no.6329)on 12\9\07. Before me boarding the train i had enquired about the berth, since i was a single female traveller and he promised to arrange . As the journey started , the TTE Shiv mohan(duty from tvm to trichur) , aroused a demand for the berth and could concern only if i was ready to pay him more. since i disagreed with him, he asked me to get to the general compartment. He abused me a lot since he was drunk. I was totally helpless since it was a night journey and me being a female.
