Police have registered an offence against a contractor and three others for alleged misuse of a public toilet meant for physically challenged persons at the Thane railway station.

According to a complaint filed by an official of the NGO, Prahar Apang Railway Pravasi Sanghatana, the contractor was allowing everyone to use the toilet, a police official said.
