Central Railway queues bypassed; This man cornered Rs.1.47 crore worth tickets
In a preventive check conducted on May 2 by the Vigilance team along with RPF Crime Intelligence Branch/PNVL & Anti-Tout Squad CSMT at Oshiwara, Jogeshwari West, Mumbai, the kingpin of this racket was nabbed and his laptop confiscated. The team seized a software server and also recovered 80 E-tickets amounting Rs 1,04,465 from the tout's possession. A case was registered against him at RPF/Byculla under the Railways Act, a press statement said.
Central Railway found a few unauthorised software related to e-tickets being operated, which allowed unauthorised agents to bypass normal queues and thereby make illegal gains. Image source: Reuters
