Migrants forced to pay bribe, TTE suspended

Patiala, May 18

A senior Railways official has been suspended for allegedly extorting money from migrants desperate to move to their native places via Shramik trains.

An inquiry has been marked against the train ticket examiner (TTE), following allegations that he allegedly accepted bribe from poor migrants. Sources say while the train fare is being borne by the state government, the district administration is providing packaged food to the migrants for their journey. Some migrants, after reaching their destination, complained to the administration over the phone that they were forced to pay a fixed sum before being allowed to board the train. — TNS
