A man has pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting young women on V/Line trains as they travelled between Bendigo and Melbourne.
Ajay Chopra, 41, pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent assault and two charges of attempted indecent assault in the County Court on Thursday after deciding overnight against having his case go to trial.
Chopra approached five women, aged between 20 and 30, between February 1 and August 17, 2011 and either indecently assaulted them or tried to.
Previous court hearings were told he approached the women offering to read their palms.
Chopra, of Bendigo, will undergo psychological assessment before his plea hearing resumes.
Chopra applied to the court for matters to be suppressed because he was embarrassed about his identity being published.
But judge Gerard Mullaly said there was not a "skerrick" of a reason to suppress proceedings so long as Chopra's victims were not identified.
Chopra had his bail extended and was told to surrender his passport, not to leave Australia and to report to police twice a week.
