By Newsgram Staff Writer

A drive against ticketless travel in trains was launched by railway magistrate, VK Singh. It led to the catching of as many as 40 policemen crouching in train toilets in fear of being caught for travelling without tickets.

As per a TOI report, the surprise check was done on Mahakaushal Express and Chattisgarh Express trains since they are considered to be the most feasible trains to travel between Agra and neighboring district of Mathura.

A team led by the magistrate along with assistant commandant of Railway Protection Force (RPF) and 5 other security personnel imposed a fine on 103 passengers of which 40 were allegedly civil police personnel.  A total of Rs 29,780 was collected as fine, of which Rs 11,990 was collected from the cops.

In what was an embarrassing situation for the unusual suspects, this initiative against ticketless travel has exposed how the keepers of law are indulging in deceitful practices.
