Mangalore/India, May 20 — Two days after a 53-year-old professor was arrested and charged for begging on suburban trains, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) said that Sandeep Desai should have sought their permission before starting to collect money, which he uses for setting up education institutes. Desai, however, claimed that he had already given an application to the Railway administration in 2010.

“Before I started making rounds in the local trains for the charity, I had given a written application to the railway administration. The authorities had rejected it, but said that if I don’t trouble anyone, no action will be taken against me,” Desai told HT.
