Rail reservation tout held by CBI
Central Bureau of Investigation's Pune unit yesterday arrested a railway reservation tout from Rajgurunagar post office for allegedly black marketing tickets from tatkal quota
A departmental enquiry of personnel from the Rajgurunagar post office has been initiated, who were allegedly hand in glove with the accused.
The offender has been identified as Vikas Kumar, a resident of Chinchwad.
“We received a tip-off that touts are active at the post office, where the facility of railway reservation has been allotted to aid people from the area. Based on this information, we raided the post office on Tuesday morning when the accused was black marketing Tatkal tickets, and arrested him red-handed,” said a Pune CBI official.
The arrested tout has been handed over to the Railway Protection Force (RPF) at Dehu road, which would now investigate the matter further.
