MUMBAI: A day after arresting an RPF inspector in a disproportionate assets case, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of CBI conducted raids in an express train and busted a racket run by three ticket examiners (TTEs).

The TTEs, Naresh Kumar Chawla, Ajit Kumar Sinha and Raj Prakash Singh, were suspended by the railways on Saturday evening.

Acting on a tip-off, the ACB and the Railway Vigilance Cell carried out a surprise check in 2954 August Kranti Rajdhani Express. "We had information that ticketless passengers frequently travelled from Surat and Vapi to Mumbai Central. The TTE took money from these people and regularized them without issuing receipts and did not remit the amount to the railways," said an ACB official. The ACB carried searches particularly in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ACs compartment. The passengers were regularized & penalty of Rs. 19,510/- was received from them.

"Chawla, superintendent of first and second AC coaches, was caught with Rs 2,000 that was undeclared. He had allowed six passengers to travel without a proper ticket. Sinha had Rs 20,250 unaccounted for, while Singh had Rs 13,220," the official said.

Singh, TTE, working in B-5 to B-8 coach was found possessing Rs. 13,220/- undeclared and unaccounted cash. He had allowed 3 passengers to travel without proper ticket. In addition he had taken an advance of Rs. 1,500/- from 3 passengers without issuing the receipt.

All the above 3 TTEs were suspended by DRM, Western Railway, Mumbai on the request of CBI.
