Who are you. 

Are you a passenger.

Your locus standi to arrest a person is important as Section 141 of Railways Act provide:

Section 141 in The Railways Act, 1989

141. Needlessly interfering with means of communication in a train.—If any passenger or any other person, without reasonable and sufficient cause, makes use of, or interferes with, any means provided by a railway administration in a train for communication between passengers and the railway servant in charge of the train, he shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine which may extend to one thousand rupees, or with both: Provided that, in the absence of special and adequate reasons to the contrary to be mentioned in the judgment of the court, where a passenger, without reasonable and sufficient cause, makes use of the alarm chain provided by a railway administration, such punishment shall not be less than—

(a) a fine of five hundred rupees, in the case of conviction for the first offence; and

(b) imprisonment for three months in case of conviction for the second or subsequent offence.

On account of nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic, the Court functioning of RCT has sufferred. Since the judicial process cannot be kept in abeyance for long, the Court functioning through video conferencing is under consideration. For the functioning of a virtual Court, the platform of Cisco Webex or equal platform would be used by all officials of RCT and advocates of the bench.
Links for Cisco Webex are given below. After clicking on any of these links, you will be redirected to a third party website.
