Raids conducted by RPF on illegal ticket booking agents
The WR RPF had arrested 268 touts and seized fraudulent tickets to the tune of 1.34 crore in 2015, while in 2014, they had arrested 300 touts and recovered Rs 41.83 lakh. Sources in the RPF said that agents selling e-tickets fraudulently had been targeted, and that this fraud practice had gained steam by using the IRCTC website.
During the checks, it was found that the agencies generated several e-tickets on personal IDs and sold them at a premium. They also had computer software that allowed them to book in bulk. The RPF have seized mobile phones, CPUs, printers, laptops, reservation forms, visiting cards, diaries, registers and books with passenger details to ensure the touts don’t escape.
