Several train passenger who freaked out at the sight of a nude elderly woman, activated the emergency alarm, which caused the police to come on board, police in India said.
Mumbai police said that the incident unfolded on the Thane-CST train around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
Passengers told investigators that the 70-year-old woman appeared to be mentally disturbed. Some of the passengers pulled the alarm chain as the train was entering the Mulund station.
Police who arrived at the scene, said that the woman was a beggar and nude. Police officers gave the woman some clothes and ordered her to get out of the train.
In November, police in Illinois, were called after a woman was seen on a train wearing no clothes.
After she boarded the Chicago subway without clothes, the woman claimed to be the “Goddess of the Train,” witnesses told police.
The woman was fully clothed when she got to the L Train at the Granville station, but stripped before boarding the train. The woman reportedly told the riders to get off the train. She was seen on video kicking passengers.
The woman was also seen kicking a police officer as he tried to handcuff her. Police believe that the woman suffers from mental illness. The train was delayed for about 15 minutes until the naked woman was taken away in handcuffs.
A spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department said that the woman was taken to St. Francis Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
