Singh carried out the assaults on trains as they left Green Park and Oxford Circus last month.

PC Thomas O'Regan said:

"Plain clothes officers began observing Gurjinder Singh after they noticed him acting suspiciously as he was paying close attention to female passengers. He was caught during a two-week operation that saw a total of 15 people arrested across London for sexual offences.

"We don't tolerate unwanted sexual behaviour of any kind on the transport network and take all reports seriously."
